|| My eleventh entry for Holidailies so far this year...
(Just wander in from Holidailies? There's an introduction to the main characters
down towards the bottom of the page... just scroll down.)
Christmas Eve at last.
Perhaps I should say "Christmas Eve so soon!" because of how
unready we seemed to be, but I think we have caught up with things.
Uh, except the tree is still on the roof of my car in the driveway, but
otherwise I think we are ready. LOL!
I have brought the ornaments up from the basement, but I don't think the
tree is going to get set up until after dinner. Ah well, I am sure it will
still look nice tomorrow morning. Since the baby of the family is a two
hundred pound bearded 23 year old, Christmas morning is no longer a flurry
of activity and childish cries of joy. Still, we do enjoy our Christmas
morning rituals, opening presents, sipping coffee, enjoying being together.
Well, excuse me, but I have to cut this entry short so I can go get dinner
