At our house, cookies (just three kinds) are baked, presents are (mostly) wrapped, Christmas eve dinner ingredients are (almost) purchased, and--most importantly--the dogs have their bows on.
I've worked this season on celebrating the whole season and not just making the weeks before Christmas a long check-off-the-to-do-list period, and that has made me feel a little more peaceful and less depressed this season (it happens some times). We've watched "Elf" and "Rudolph" and the SNL Christmas special (Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without Schweddy Balls.
One of the many things my Twinnie and I have in common is that we both enjoy when the whole world slows down on Christmas eve and people retreat into their circles of family and love. I hope your Christmas Eve slows down in just the way you wish it to and that your holiday weekend is filled with peace. See you next week!
