Bill and I went to the Y this morning and then had breakfast before he went to the car lot and I went home to cook and bake and get the house ready for Christmas. Whew, what a tiring day but I got everything on my list done and now, hopefully, I can relax with our family and friends tomorrow. Bill is putting on two turkeys, one fried and one on the grill early morning tomorrow. I am actually still baking cookies but am almost done with that as well.
Bill and I opened our gifts to each other tonight and it was special and really nice. He got me a watch and I got him clothes. Its hard after 38 years to think of gifts and I know a lot of people don't exchange gifts when they have been married a long time, but we like to have something to give each other.
I have thought often today of all the children who wait in anticipation of what tomorrow morning will bring. I am reminded of the joy this season brings.
Merry Christmas eve.
