Santa's here, Santa's here!!!

Yes, it's that time of year. Christmas. And what better way to share Christmas than with the three latest, beautiful, additions to the Stroessner clan?

Christmas this year was spent in Jefferson City, with the Grandparents, and we were very happy that all of us kids, and grandkids, could be there. It was a full house... but we all managed to get along and have a fun Christmas.

And when we returned to KC, we were greated with this. 8" of snow, and still snowing!

So, we settled in by the tree.

And as vision of sugar plumbs dance in there heads, a Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night.

December 2

I can't believe it's December! When did that happen? So here's the quick and dirty rundown.

Jeff has the flu. Not the swine flu (thank God!). Just the regular miserable flu. Both Jeff and I are going to the pediatrician today to get the H1N1 vaccine. I think it's funny that two adults without kids (we're leaving the girls with my mom) are going to be sitting in the waiting room at the peds office, waiting to be called back...

Lucy and Jane had their first visit to Loose Park Sunday. It was a beautiful day and they not only enjoyed a walk (by the way, that loop is MUCH longer when you're pushing twins), but they also had a lovely photo shoot courtesy of Jan and my mom. Get excited for the Christmas cards!

I never thought I would be so excited about poop. We cheer around here when the girls go number 2. From the looks of relief on their faces, I think they're cheering on the inside. And here's the funny poo story of the day. Most of you know we have a fairly friendly rivalry in this house. Jayhawks vs Tigers. And the border war was Saturday. I thought it would be a good time for Lucy to get to try on her KU onesie (thanks again Lacy!) and Jeff was surprisingly cooperative. Well, this was one of those times when Lucy hadn't pooped in a day or so and seemed pretty uncomfortable. So shortly after the game (which KU unfortunately lost), Lucy started grunting and Jeff excitedly changed her diaper and let out a cheer which quickly turned to a less cheerful sound when Lucy kept going. And going. And going. Like the Energizer Bunny but less fuzzy. And no drum. She dirtied at least two additional diapers, a handful of wipes, and got poo all over her KU onesie. I fear this one is going to be a Mizzou girl...

Okay, almost time for Jeff and I to head to the pediatrician's office.
