Advent wasn't all I had hoped it to be. You'd think- or at least I thought- that an extra week to prepare would have made the prep work for the preparing that much easier. It didn't. Instead, we came down with a cold, all the good library books were...

Octavius

  *** A word about "Octavius". Yes, for the last 3 kiddos, we have called them by their latin number name.  The birthing center heard me hollering, "Sixtus, come OUT!!!" while delivering Lu and we had a special place in our hearts for Septimus Prime. But all of that...
