The stockings are hung on the mantel with care.
Lights are strung, and tables decorated and wreath hung, and piles of gifts are wrapped and waiting for the tree to arrive.
The kids have been busy, playing with friends, and going to school. Stories read, songs sung, "Celtic Thunder" watched, peppermint milk shake partaken of...we're getting in the spirit!
Oh yeah, and H and I went out for a very Christmasy lunch yesterday. Beth, my neighbor, and I are the "box top queens" and had a pizza party at the school for the winning class. After I brought Han home with me and we stopped by the Front Porch. It was all decorated for Christmas and had lovely music and was very nice!
