So...the gifts are all wrapped and tagged, the house is (fairly) clean, the errands are completed and the cooking is done....I think we're ready for Christmas.
Today is still a busy day, but it's all good. I'm babysitting this morning, going to my daughters for Christmas Eve family time 1:00, heading to church at 5, then home to make sure the stockings are filled and ready for the kids to arrive tomorrow. Phew! We are ready!
Tomorrow will be a day of celebration for the great gift of the baby Jesus, of fun with the family, of a it of melancholy for those no longer on earth with us and those far away, but for the most part laughter and love. It truly is the best time of the year.
Now....if only we could order up a nice light snowfall.....
