Merry Christmas

December 25, 2009

Our frozen rain has turned into flurries of snow making for a beautiful Christmas day.  A quietly festive day spent lazily in front of a warm fire with family by my side.

The highlight?

Coffee in front of the fireplace made by my favorite barista (Cory, you’re the best) while the kids cleaned up the giftwrap on the floor beneath the tree. Without being told. And they only complained a little that Santa apparently never read their letters. Perhaps next year they should make sure they give them to the Stephens family Santa laison, i.e., me.

As for my Christmas gift?  It was warm and cozy.  Two kids, snuggled in our bed, letting us sleep in, despite their overwhelming desire to run downstairs to check on Santa and company.  Though something tells me they did it more for themselves than for us.  A thinly veiled attempt to squeeze in any little bit of good behavior before the moment of reckoning…

Hope your holiday was just as warm and cozy.
