...and to all, a good night!

Christmas Eve is here.

Will you spend it waiting in line at the grocery store, wondering why you didn't pick up milk a couple of days ago?

Will you be wrapping gifts and looking for extra scotch tape?

Are you all done, and ready to enjoy a quiet day with friends?

Did you stay up all last night completing things, and today just want a nap?

Or maybe you will be traveling, heading home to family.

Perhaps you have to work today, and look forward to leaving early to start the holiday.

My gifts are wrapped, but I have not started baking, so I am hoping to get a thing or two made in the morning before we head in to ACES.

And I will also take the time today, to remember Christmas Eve in the past:  Taking out the pink sponge curlers from my hair and putting on a skirt for our church Christmas program, looking forward to the candy cane sundaes we would have at Bridgemans after it was over.  Trying to get to sleep on Christmas eve-listening so hard to hear the sound of sleigh bells in the cold night sky.  Wrapping the presents my dad bought that day for my mom.  Helping my mom get treats ready for the evening's celebrations, so happy to be home from college.  Helping Charlie put out cookies and milk for Santa, and carrots for the reindeer, and staying awake until Charlie fell asleep so I could fill his stocking and put his gift from Santa under the tree.

It truly is, a wonderful life.

Merry Christmas to all!  May the love of family and friends surround you.


  1. Spending today and tomorrow with my wonderful husband and kids. Christmas couldn't get any better than that. Love to you and yours. Merry Christmas, dear friend.

  2. Heading to the grocery store soon for some last minute items. Oh joy.

    Hope your Christmas Eve is magical!


Thanks for stopping by!
