Christmas Eve Squared

December 23. Christmas Eve eve. Or Christmas Eve squared.

My favorite day of the season. 

All of the fun is still to come. Time to enjoy the small things - a Christmas movie, a cup of hot chocolate with carols playing in the background, a piece of fudge or a cookie and some tea. 
K and I got to be Christmas elves tonight.

I had some packages I had to deliver before Christmas and wanted some company. I had to promise her a cup of holiday flavored coffee from a local coffee shop to get her to go with me. We played Christmas carols while driving around and sang along rather boisterously.

Well, I did.

She refused to participate. And might have entreated me to stop trying to sing. I'm not known for my singing abilities. One Sunday in church I was singing my little heart out, thinking I was sounding pretty good. The teenage boy in front of me turned around slowly and stared at me.

Not in a friendly, "Wow! She sounds great!" kind of way.

More like a, "Lady, please stop singing" kind of way.

But that doesn't stop me. I still sing my heart out every chance I get.

Carpe diem.
