'tis the night before christmas
and all through the house...
its (still) raining steadily outside.
making the lights seem twinklier.
the pressies are wrapped,
using brown kraft paper
stamped with vintage postal office stamps,
and a little holly.
the baking is done
and ready to share.
the quiet before the
that is a big family christmas.
we can't wait.
wishing for you and yours
may we be blessed.
