Christmas eve…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Char @ 6:34 am

Twas the night before Christmas…

I love the anticipation.

The excuse to stay up late and sleep in. Hot chocolate and cookies at 2pm (it is Christmas, after all). Last minute shopping trips..why can’t I ever finish early?!! Christmas carols in their full glory (a day from now…they don’t just don’t sound as good.) Gingerbread houses are on the agenda…graham crackers does the trick.

Love it all.


For the past three weeks, Riley has been making “gifts” from paper plates and crayons, wrapping them up, and proudly giving them out. He wants a crocodile pillow for Christmas, is quite proud of his handmade snowman card from kindergarten class, and is thrilled with the multi-colored candy cane from his bus driver.

To me, Christmas means time…time to remember the reason for the season, time away from email and computer, time to give to others, time to spend in the comfort of this near and dear.

Wishing you a super-duper merry, merry Christmas! Blessings, Char.
