I am either missing Joseph or a wise man.
The packages are finally wrapped. I have quiet peaceful Christmas music on . It's softly raining and this Christmas Eve is going to be very special with my daughter and her family.
The first years of my marriage there were no children at Christmas just adults and in the middle of the evening Alice would bring out the Santa suit.It was such a funny scene the then young men trying to make the other one dress up in the suit. Then one of the sons would leave the room put on the suit and we would all act like it was the most natural thing to have a conversation with Santa. I remember Santa's bells ringing and feeling rather silly seeing Santa at the front door but it was his family's tradition.
Now Santa at the door with all the presents is a happy memory of past Christmas Eve's. It was so different then my own family's tradition which was tamales at Christmas Eve and everyone talking at once.Lol! Well now Hubby is our designated Santa and little Jack will be surprised when he sees Santa at his house.Little Jacks a year and a half and I am not quite sure what he is going to think. It ought to be an interesting moment.
The weather in Crest is foggy and my wood burning stove is working great.I am waiting for hubby to come home and our Christmas eve to officially begin. I have talked on the phone to relatives and friends and wished my Aunt Sophie a Merry Christmas. Morris is happy to be next to the wood burning stove Maulie is asleep waiting for hubby.The suit is being brought out for its second Christmas season with little Jack.
