I wish I had some great tips for surviving the week before Christmas…
It just seems that sometimes I cannot wait until December 26th when time returns to normal…
This year I am looking at the holiday through the eyes of a three year old grandchild.
Three is a wonderful age…Santa is real… the Elf on the Shelf is real…and the mysterious wonder surrounding the appearance of random candy canes in the Advent Calendar every morning is a delight.
Hiding gifts is not too difficult…three year olds are not snoopy..,
Thank goodness for shopping online…and good weather.
Hats off to FedEx … USPS… and …UPS …what I do without them?
Now, if only the tree was fully decorated…but that will happen and the stockings will be hung and …
soon it will be Christmas.
Santa will arrive…the Elf will depart
and all the squeals of surprise will sound.
… it will all be over in the wink of an eye …until 2012!
