The last Christmas nativity cracker has been opened and a fancy dinner enjoyed. We went to Mass, saw friends, tracked Santa on NORAD and read "Twas the Night Before Christmas." Cookies and carrots have been left out for Santa and his reindeer.
This year he's also getting a long list of queries from the boys.
Yesterday we had a delightfully noisy online gathering with all the cousins in Virginia. Big Sister and I were especially sad to see that end. But it is quiet here now. In the predawn darkness, the smalls will wake us so we can all see the tree together. The Mister will read from Luke and then gifts will be opened. We'll spend most of our day in pajamas playing. Eventually we'll make a yummy brunch and deliver a big platter to our porters. I absolutely love our Christmas Days at home.
On this lovely Christmas Eve in London, the smalls are tucked away in their little nests. Every day should end so sweetly and with such anticipation of what tomorrow holds.
We wish you a very happy Christmas.
Also, consider this your Christmas card. Sent with much love.
