The packages have been ripped open, the kids are watching toons, and the husband and dog have gone back upstairs for a long "winter's nap."
If it weren't for the cold I'm holding at bay, I'd say that I was feeling pretty good. The kids were really into Christmas this year. They are the perfect ages for Christmas. At 7 and 4, both of them understood that Christmas was approaching. Both of them were excited by the sites and sounds of the holidays. And both of them are too young to start asking if Santa is real or not.
O.K. my Christmas peace has been interrupted. The kiddies are fighting over - whatelse- the TV. Gotta run and help settle the war, one of many I believe my children will fight today. One more thing to note: I haven't heard "Do They Know It's Christmastime At All?" once this year and that's my favorite. What's the deal?
