The tree is up; presents wrapped and on the bench by the tree. With three dogs and a cat in the house putting them under the tree would be a tad too much temptation methinks... Especially since one of the pooches (that would be Abby) really likes to chew. On anything. Or everything. Candles are ready to be lit and the Yule log is ready to go in the fire; I especially love the lights, they just say 'Christmas' to me.
It's the kidling's first Christmas at home in several years and we're all wallowing in the hominess. Hominess is totally a word now btw. She baked KILLER cookies last night with four kinds of chocolate as well as butterscotch chips! Tonight most everything is done, other than a few things to do ahead for tomorrow's big dinner. We'll follow our Christmas Eve tradition of opening one gift...and truth be told...we'll probably end up opening all of them except what's in our stockings, lol.
May your worlds be Merry and Bright, and may what you most need find it's way to you in a timely manner. May your New Year begin in joy and laughter (and carry that theme throughout the year). Until January 3rd my friends!
