When the Big Day Comes

You wait and you wait for that elf to arrive.

Looking out this window and that but



finally he does come

and brings those toys and clothes

some of which are so scary that the children won’t put them on.

So the grownups have to wear them instead..

which is initially terrifying,

but then not so much

In general people seemed to like their presents around here,  especially the one who got a giant abominable snowman jackets.

In general it was like this today around the tree (though the video is from two years ago.)  I just like that little one’s quiet way as he looks around in his webbed Spider Man PJs, taking it all in.

Hope you take it all in too, and are warm and happy and safe as the sun does its quick winter  fade and we rush around fast to light the candles.
