Christmas Eve wishes


It’s Christmas Eve.  Technically, anyway.  I have yet to get to bed, so when I wake up it will be Christmas Eve.

Anyway, when you read this, it will be Christmas Eve, so I want to wish you a Happy Christmas Eve.

I hope your cookies are baked, your presents are wrapped and your holiday preparations are complete.

As for me, my presents are mostly wrapped.  At least one has yet to arrive, so I’m hoping for a last-minute delivery tomorrow.

(Can I just give a shout-out to Costco wrapping paper?  I love it so much.  A roll lasts forever . . . unlike some of the rolls you get at other places.)

I baked some cookies tonight and have cut-out cookie dough in the fridge ready to roll out and bake.  Last night, I made homemade marshmallows–I got the idea from Carmen–and tonight I drank a cup of hot cocoa featuring a giant square marshmallow.

I feel surprisingly ready for Christmas.

I haven’t written a Christmas letter but I hope to write something this week.  It’ll be a New Year’s letter.  So, if you’re waiting for that mythical Christmas letter from me, don’t fret.

Merry Christmas Eve!  May visions of sugar-plums dance in your head.

  1. I’m wondering if this is just what it’s like as our children get older (and we get older) but I have been “all ready” for Christmas for a while now. It’s great, but also I feel like I must be forgetting something! I did make cookie dough last night and will bake the cookies today. Other than that, bring on Christmas! 🙂



  2. Merry Christmas Eve to you too Mel!
    I have one more batch of cookies to bake, one present left to wrap, and two quiches to put together. Then I’m done.
    Hope you have a blessed Christmas day!


  3. I needed to go to a store, but also needed to be home, baking. So, I went to Trader Joe’s and “baked” and “made candies”. They had some really good looking treats, so I’m done baking.

    Now to find my wrapping paper – I know I have a tub full. Got tape and tissue paper yesterday, so I’ll get busy. Wrapping is my least favorite thing in the whole world to do. I think.

    I was just on the computer tracking a package. It says it is coming – if not, someone will be very unhappy. Three someones, actually. But Merry Christmas to you.
