‘Tis Christmas Eve, the frenzy in our home is palpable. My kids woke up and been fluttering about, as little butterflies, all morning. On my end, the pressure is off! The gifts are hidden and ready to spring under the tree tonight, my hostess skills were put to the test last night (we have such a modern reconstructed family that our Christmas parties start on the 23rd end end somewhere before January 1st) and all that is left to do today is to choose what to wear to the Sicotte’s family reunion tonight.
Although I am all grown up, I think I am as excited by the festivities as the children are. There is something whimsical and almost magical about this time of year and for some reason I feel as if December brings with its lot of snow and Christmas trees some family values that we seem to wrap in paper tissue with the ornaments the rest of the year.
