Yesterday, I caught Lottie in my closet, where I keep the Christmas presents.
She was going through all of her gifts.
I felt like crying.
I was a little mad and told her so.
She knows my closet (and room) is off-limits at this time of year.
She pointed to the sign I had taped on my door that says:
"Santa's Workshop DO NOT ENTER."
And then told me: "Mom, I can't read that sign, so I didn't know."

The girls and I finished up last-minute decorations for our traditional 
Scandinavian Christmas dinner on Sunday.
All the shopping is done, and we are supposed to have a nice snowstorm moving
in today, lasting until Monday.  BRING IT ON.
These next few days will be spent with my little family, enjoying
our traditions, our love, Christmas music, peace,
movies around the fireplace, 
and the light we feel only at the time of year.
