An odd Christmas eve. Didn’t really feel like Christmas eve. Three things helped:

The first was the candy cane I just finished.

Second was the nativity story:
Here is my dad reading the nativity story while Ely listens closely:


Third was enjoying my siblings kids and their excitement for the holiday:

Here is a link to a video of my nieces playing “sleeping bunnies,” a game I taught them last year at Christmas. This is the scene I’m used to at Christmas: pjs, dancing, excited kids. This year I sang them the song via FaceTime while they danced.

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!
