Begin

Christmas Eve day! Oh joy! Lots of snow on the ground and more is on its way. We might get freezing rain at some point, but snow is promised for tonight and tomorrow so Santa should have a good trip to our corner of the country this year.

Lady Bug and Power Puff made it home safely last night. The roads were snowy and slippery, so I was a tad concerned when their bus was over an hour late, but we eventually got the call that they were at the bus station and had arrived safe and sound- a bit road weary but safe. I breathed a huge sigh of relief when all four of our kids walked in the door about twenty minutes after I got that call.

We will all gather at our house for lunch today and then head over to Butterfly's for a sleepover tonight so Santa only has one stop to make.

I must go help AC in the kitchen now. He is making his famous sweet potato soup (that is the only thing Lady Bug specifically requested be on the menu for today). We will munch on a delicious buffet at Butterfly's later tonight and feast on turkey with all the trimmings tomorrow. Oh my poor waistline.

Lots to do today, so I will quickly post this last Advent update, wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Season's Greetings and then sign off until next week sometime.



I got these delightful little tree candles and the girls got snowflakes and this quote and note.

"Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake." Marie Beynon Ray

Follow a heart's desire today. Pick up a book, make that call, join that club, grab that paint brush, start that course. Begin, begin, begin.
