Christmas Eve Scurry

It's Christmas Eve, and around my house, we're scurrying.

No, there's no last minute shopping--we've been done for a few days now. But we're sort of hiding from each other so we can wrap presents, make cards (a tradition around here), and assess our readiness for tomorrow.

Every now and then we kind of bump into each other--"Mom?! Where's the tape?"--or--"Someone has to vacuum the living room!"--or--"We have to be ready to go at 12:45!" My daughters don't know it, but we're heading to Denver today to see a performance of Irving Berlin's "White Christmas." Sarah and I are really excited to take them. Two years ago we saw The Rockettes' Christmas, and it was fantastic.

So, a-scurrying we will go. . .all the way through Christmas.

Merry Christmas!

    Man, we know all about the scurry before Christmas. . .Sort of fun! Around our house, it's loaded with tradition, too! In other words, we do it every year.
