ALL the shopping
food and gifts?
As much decorating as I can possibly do this year?
Finally, all three of my kids home where they belong?
no swim, no friends, no school...
Nothing wrapped yet?
Family outing to the Phoenix Zoo to see Zoolights?
Meat and sauce prepped for tomorrow's lasagna?
A perfectly executed (and devoured) Christmas Eve meal of
(little bit Eye-Talian)
with roasted brussel sprouts
(little olive oil, little breadcrumbs, little salt)
(little bit German)?
and a bike ride for the kids,
up the street, along a few of the trails,
while taking in an A.mazing sunset?
when we heard the pack of coyotes yapping,
yapping, yapping, as they were getting closer and closer and closer
DOUBLE FRICKEN CHECK!
We will no longer be admiring the sunset without being in a vehicle somewhere...
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?
Time to wrap.....
