The gingerbread house has been made.
Presents are wrapped and waiting under the tree.
Santa has been seen.
Our downtown Riverwalk date has been had.
Egg nog has been consumed.
The youth group party I planned is over and done.
My poinsettia costume has been worn.
Christmas cards were mailed and received by others.
75% of all the good Christmas movies have been watched.
And Jacob has de-ornamented the tree infinity times.
Cookies have been baked - and boys covered with flour.
Holiday parties were missed.
Tears have been cried. Aches have been ached. Laughs have been laughed.
Christmastime is here again. A very, very merry one to you.
