Officially. At least in my time zone.
A few cookies have been made. There are still gifts to be wrapped (thank you, former self for making gift bags.) Cinnamon rolls to be made for Christmas morning.
But tamales are made. Chili is done. We even took a quick 36 hour trip to a neighboring town for a special night of lights and gingerbread pancakes.
If I don't get back before the holiday ... for those who celebrate it, a very happy Christmas. We don't know what next year may bring. It may be sad, it may be absolutely wonderful, beyond our wildest dreams. But we have this Christmas. Whatever it is ... a solitary day of peace, a wild and raucous day with family ... I send to you a wish for smiles, a wish of peace in your heart.
