Don’t tell him that I told you, but I caught Mike humming along and snapping his fingers to my Kenny G. “Miracles” Christmas CD. First shock was that he suggested that I put it – or another holiday one – in the CD player. But then … he was humming along! I saw him do it! *SO* busted!
Meanwhile, my lights are finally on my Christmas tree, and he gets all of the credit for it. Saturday I will put the ornaments on. My holiday spirit level is on a steady increase, and this is truly a good thing. I still have to finish my Christmas cards though – so if you’re waiting for one, it will probably be late. Sorry about that!
Kymberlie stopping by to pick up her ZipZap for her brother and dropping off wonderful Christmas presents for me – a copy of “The Freshman” and a grilled sandwich maker – also helped to get me in to the holiday groove. It was wonderful to get a chance to see her!
To top it all off, I put up my Mom’s Nativity set. It’s the one they had while I was growing up. I remember playing with the animals and making sure everything was arranged just right in the stable. I used to think that the wise men should be far away and move closer after Christmas, but not arrive at the scene until January 6th – Epiphany – yes, the 12th day of Christmas. Putting it up at my house brought back a lot of childhood memories – and in the end, isn’t Christmas all about the memories? Now the holidays have finally arrived for me.
