I want to let you folks know that an emergency health crisis has arisen in the extended LilySea family and thwarted our usual holiday routines. Things are stabilized now and I am in the process of salvaging a bit of the original plan and headed with Selina to meet Cole and Nat at the in-laws'. The post-holiday child report and accompanying photos will be quite late if they arrive at all here on the blog. Overall, I understand, from Cole that it went well and Nat is now sated with European-made, wooden toys and the attention of many doting elders.
Please keep Selina and me in your thoughts/prayers for a safe cross-country car trip and please hold A. in the light and wish her health and wholeness.
