The Checklist

ALL the shopping
food and gifts?
CHECK

As much decorating as I can possibly do this year?
CHECK

Finally, all three of my kids home where they belong?
no swim, no friends, no school...
CHECK
Nothing wrapped yet?
CHECK
(dammit...)

Family outing to the Phoenix Zoo to see Zoolights?
CHECK
Meat and sauce prepped for tomorrow's lasagna?
CHECK

A perfectly executed (and devoured) Christmas Eve meal of
(little bit Eye-Talian)
with roasted brussel sprouts
(little olive oil, little breadcrumbs, little salt)
with.....
(little bit German)?
CHECK


A much needed walk for Bill, Lucy and I,
and a bike ride for the kids,
after dinner,
up the street, along a few of the trails,
while taking in an A.mazing sunset?
CHECK




The fastest walk/ride home EVER....OK we were running, actually
when we heard the pack of coyotes yapping,
yapping, yapping, as they were getting closer and closer and closer
to us?
DOUBLE FRICKEN CHECK!

We will no longer be admiring the sunset without being in a vehicle somewhere...

Anyhoo.

A great ending to a great night?
CHECK to that, as we sat outside in front of a fire,
sipping coffee and hot cocoa,
listening to Garrin tell ghost stories.

Blog post done?
CHECK

Time to wrap.....
(dammit)

Gorgeous pictures, but that coyote story freaks me out. You'd better start packin' heat!
