That I got over my fear of making sugar cookies.
That we trekked out on a snowy day to cut down our own Christmas tree.
That both kids really like playing the snow, wherever we were.
That MaM was geeked to help with stamping the Christmas cards and wrapping gifts. She also got into hiding gifts for her dad and brother. “They’re in my dresser drawer, Mommy, because they won’t look there.”
This was the year…
That MaM explained Christmas to Junior through song, quoting “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” almost daily as Christmas approached.
That Junior became obsessed with The Grinch, and “his green hands!”
That we watched The Wizard of Oz together during a cold snowy night during the week before Christmas.
That MaM discovered Cole Porter during her “Mom and Dad” day during the week before Christmas.
Ah, it’s been a good long run, this Christmas Season.
Merry Christmas (a few days late) and Happy New Year, Friends!
