Three More Sleeps 'Til Christmas.

I left the house this morning, and it was evening when I returned.
I ran last-minute Christmas errands and went to the
 grocery store for our holiday grocery haul.
I came home to four eager children who helped me carry all 
the packages, sacks, and groceries inside.
It rained the whole day, and while it wasn't super cold, it was cozy
and hygge-ish.  My favorite!
Later in the evening, Christian went on a mysterious trip somewhere
and came home with a mysterious Tupperware hidden under a blanket.
Inside was Gigs's Ball Python, a gift he didn't even know he would get!
Our friend and fellow snake lover had him living 
at his house for the last few weeks.
We kept him (or her?) under our TV.
I can't believe I did that.
Then Gigs and Lottie put on a little shadow-puppet show before bed.

Oh, and I've had this song from 
The Muppet's Christmas Carol in my brain all day:
(Even though I know it's three more sleeps until Christmas).

There's magic in the air this evening
Magic in the air
The world is at her best, you know
When people love and care
The promise of excitement
Is one the night will keep
After all, there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas
The world has gotta smile today
The world has gotta glow
There's no such thing as strangers
When a stranger says, "Hello"
And everyone is family
We're havin' so much fun
After all there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas
'Tis the season to be jolly and joyous
With a burst of pleasure we feel it all right
It's a season when the Saints can employ us
To spread the news about peace and to keep love alive
There's somethin' in the wind today that's good for everyone
Yes, faith is our hearts today, we're shinin' like the sun
And everyone can feel it, the feelin's runnin' deep
After all there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas
After all there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas day!
