Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house...were children!!
Every year as we go to bed on Christmas, we critique the day....and every year we say that it was the best one ever. This year, we said that again. With 2 -3 year olds and 2 babies in the house, it was so much fun! We ate, played, went to church together trying not to forget the reason for the season...but the little ones were sooo anxious to open their gifts! The best line of the day was Cooper asking "can you find my name"? (on a package) Bailey, much more quietly asked "do you see my name too?" When the answer was "yes", her eyebrows went up, eyes got big and she pointed to herself and grinned....adorable!!! Ha! Oh, the joys of grandparenthood!!!
But about the not a creature was stirring thing....
Today, after we went to see Larry's parents, we came back into the house and I was shocked to see things scattered all over the house. I
thought I was hallucinating couldn't figure it out...until I saw something move, jump up on the window sill and saw that it was a rodent squirrel!! I screamed for Larry to come but Scoobie came to my rescue first. He chased it making things worse and I was still screaming. Larry finally came yelling "what??!!??" I opened the door while he scooted the poor thing towards it with a broom and he finally saw the escape route running out. Phew! The worst part is, we don't know how he got in! We think it was there all night? When the kids packed gifts out to their cars and left doors open? Or came down the chimneys? Scarey thoughts!! It took me a while to clean it all up,....but all is well now.
In the end....Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!!
