The Eleventh Day of Christmas
Home. The best place to be on Christmas, whatever home means for you.
Like many people, we have a Christmas PJ tradition on Christmas Eve. The kids always get new ones, occasionally I do and even more occasionally Joel does. This wasn't Joel's year, according to his own needs and desire.
But the girls and I just opened some fun pink and purple polka-dotted jammies.
And, as soon as they've eaten a little bit (we totally forgot about dinner today)(decided not to do the fancy Christmas Eve dinner), we'll be gathering up next to the Christmas tree to read the Christmas Story from the Bible and then to listen to Amahl and the Night Visitors. I look forward to it all year long.
After that, we'll get ourselves ready for a long winters' nap, dream of some sugarplums and wake up hoping that St. Nicholas has been here.
What are your Christmas Eve plans?
