"Do you think I'll hear his sleigh bells when he comes tonight, Mommy?"


We're all wrapped up in wishes and wonder.

And strands of multi-colored lights.

The gifts that are now under our tree are wrapped in one of almost every kind of we own - Toy Story, stockings, Rudolph, snowmen, and Snoopy.

Jake's bedposts are still wrapped in lights and so is his door - complete with a red bow on it that he'll have to burst through when he opens it tomorrow morning. A present to open just to get to his presents - one last taste of Oscar the Elf magic that we already can't wait to experience again next December.

"Christmas" has threatened not to come several times today, but overall, it's been good.

As for tomorrow, I think Linus says it best.

Charlie Brown: "Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?!?!"

Linus: "Sure, Charlie Brown. I can tell you what Christmas is all about.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

And that's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."

Merry Christmas to all!

And to all a good night!
