It is late. And I am typing this as I head off to finish wrapping presents. Nate is making one of our traditional Christmas Day desserts a few feet away from me. (Pistachio Lush) The kids are asleep. So are my in-laws, who arrived via delayed-by-snow plane earlier today.

Our Christmas tree is perfectly imperfect. The lights are all plugged in. We listened to Bing Crosby all afternoon. I wore cheesy Santa Earrings. And a cheesy Santa Necklace.

We have all the presents bought, as of about an hour ago. By all accounts, I would say we're ahead of the game.

And it's snowing. Yes, yes, yes. We're going to have a White Christmas.

Some shoes I got today that I was super excited about and had highly anticipated and wanted to wear tomorrow to the Christmas Eve services came... and were made imperfectly. (When I spend above a certain dollar amount on footwear, my expectations are very high.) So, I'm trying to get over the fact that I have to send them back and won't be able to wear them tomorrow.

Hopefully they'll send me a perfect set in round two.

And, by the way, if you live in Colorado Springs and weren't already planning on attending a service tomorrow, COME TO OURS!!! It is absolutely inCREDible. I can honestly say I have never seen anything like this. Ice skating. Real snow. Real animals. Incredible music. Lights. Drums. Water show. All to honor our Savior.

1:30, 3:30, and 5:30. I'll be singing at the first two and attending the third with my family and dear friends.

Now, off to finish the wrapping. That's right. Waaaayyyy ahead of the game. (Since I'm usually doing it all last minute on Christmas Eve.)
