The house is clean. The baking is done. The gifts are purchased and wrapped. The work of organizing the first Christmas is all complete and after an abbreviated work day tomorrow for me it will be time to settle down and enjoy.
It has been a busy but fun holiday season so far. We have our own little things we squeeze in every day like a little chocolate just before breakfast and carols (her favorite is The Little Drummer Boy) in the car each morning and evening. She enjoys some Christmas themed bedtime stories especially a Disney version of Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol.
She is still quite apprehensive about Santa, although she adores her elf “Yule.” She doesn’t believe that Santa Claus will come down a chimney but she did ask for chocolate and a Mickey Mouse for Christmas just in case.
