Our stockings are still hung by the chimney with care. The gifts are spilling out from under the tree. Did we forget what day Saturday was? Why the delay? The best reason of all: we're waiting for everyone to be together! Today my parents and Jay arrive (Kate's been here all week - wedding stuff) and tomorrow the B'ham crew will arrive. When they do, we'll have our traditional Christmas Eve dinner (ribs!). Then I'll put on my kerchief and E.W. will put on his cap and we'll all settle down for a long winter's nap because Friday morning is the new Christmas Day!
Hey, at least this is better than the year at my in-laws when we didn't even put the tree up until the 27th!
