Is It Here Yet?

Well, what do you know! It's almost Christmas again. I started out on time, really I did. Finn, Tess, Cass and I had our tree trimming party early in December.They came over after school and it was really quite festive. We had hot chocolate with whipped cream and peppermint, frosted cookies, and of course, Christmas crackers complete with toys,riddles, and paper crowns. They each decorated their own little tree, which did a pretty good job of filling up my tiny front room.
 Tess is seven, and when her tree was done, it was mostly pink and purple, a very girly tree. Tess has decided she wants to move to Paris and be a fashion designer. Hmm, I've never been to Paris.....


 Cass is four now, and this is the first year he decorated his tree from start to finish.  We added colored lights and he was very happy with it. Finn is nine and will be as tall as his tree soon.
I put up my tree with the paper ornaments again, with a few added new ones. Maybe next year I will be able to go back to all the old decorations. Maybe not. I thought about skipping decorating completely this year, but I decided to at least do a little. Now it is one day until Christmas and I am finally thinking of decking the halls. I am really starting to miss the greenery and garlands. There's a chance I may hang the stockings. Who knows! Wishing you all a happy holiday. Ours is in three sections this year. We've had the first one, and tomorrow I will go to to Kansas City, and finally, next Saturday, there's a chance that we may all be together. It is what it is.
