I've decided that Christmas Eve-night is my favourite. I like putting out cookies and milk for Santa and then sending Catie to bed all excited for the morning but the rest of the night is really the best. I love putting together presents for her, setting them out just right so she'll see them in the morning (that darn Santa gets the credit for the best presents). I try really hard to buy fun stocking stuffers so I love the moment when I get to remember what I bought and get them all in that sock. There's last minute straightening and trying to cram in as much Christmas music and movies as you can because you know tomorrow it's all over. The anticipation builds for so long that tonight, after every one else is asleep, this peace before the excitement is my favourite time and this year I'm savouring the moment..
