Have we finally made it? Is it finally Christmas Eve?
Santa is coming tonight!
His milk and cookies are ready!
The stockings are hung by the chimney with care, and Lobster is nestled all snug in his bed.
I know they are getting older, but as long as they still tuck their animals into bed at night, they are still my little boys. Little boys who believe in Santa, who get excited about cookies, who love to set the table and help us get ready for parties, and who have deep discussions trying to figure out how Santa can be everywhere at once.
I’m pretty grateful for these guys.
Friends, food, music and a little mulled wine… Maybe we are a long way from peace on Earth, but there is peace in my heart tonight.
