Merry Christmas Friends!

The kids are snug in their beds awaiting the big arrival of Santa and I'm just dying to eat the cookies they left out for him.  What a great day it was today.  I hardly did anything and I'm happy!  Days like that are few and far between.  I had the last two "big" gifts to wrap for the kids and made them special Christmas tags that I am SURE will be torn off but it's okay.  I enjoyed making them. The tags are bigger than the actual gift. Hee Hee!  We hid these inside the tree.  Mr. Prince thinks this is a brilliant idea.  Me, not so much! <sigh>

The house is peaceful right now.  The Christmas lights are on and it's beautiful.  Tomorrow morning will be filled with lots of screams I am sure from my kids and it will bring a big smile on my face.  Most of all I'm just thankful I am together with my Prince and kids.  I'll be missing my parents.  Unusual not to be with them on Christmas morning. I'm putting together a few slideshows of the "experience" as they happen.  I know it's not the same but they can see the smiles on the kids faces and that does bring a smile to theirs. 

One last thing… the *most* precious letter ever…

She left this near HIS cookies! <teary eyes for me>
