We are all doing fine at our place. Trinity seems to have adjusted well, and we are having fun being greeted gleefully each morning. She's graduated to willingly(most of the time) sharing kisses with her Papa and Grandma, and she doesn't mind too much if Mommy and Daddy are gone for a while. Rex the Big Dog is mellowing nicely too, and the visiting cats, Flower and Blossom, are their usual selves. The only member of the household who is unhappy is Princess Patches the Cat, who is mostly spending her days in hiding, both from the visiting felines and the visiting toddler.
I am working on a book of devotions for Advent (and the week beyond). Since our church's mission is encapsulated in the acrostic "OASIS," this year's theme is "Christmas at the OASIS. The cover of the booklet is a cute palm tree decorated for Christmas. Kris is writing some of the devotions too, and we are excited about how it is turning out. I'll post the devotions here, beginning November 30 at about 5:30 a.m. so you can use them too if you would like.
A few chapters of two different books are also slowly but surely coming together. Cold has arrived for good, it seems. Mittens and hats are in order. We will be taking a short vacation in December. Not too many deep thoughts in my head at the moment.
That's it. As Trinity says, several times a day, "Ta Daaa!"
