We are one hour and three minutes away from Christmas...the little daughter is asleep dreaming. Her grandpa came over and rang jingle bells outside her window at bedtime. I've never seen her want to go to bed so quickly and willingly. It was a double tuck under the covers and a squinting of eyes shut that ended in lights out. Pure joy, pure excitement. Santa has already visited our home as evident by the castle and related accessories adorning the floor near the tree, stuffed stockings, and a cookie-less plate. Merry Christmas, friends. May magic be in your homes this night.
