A Katie Christmas

Since it's New Years Eve I thought I'd write a few things that makes an Ultimate Katie Christmas. (It's Christmas till the 6th!)

  • Bing Crosby playing in the background of all rooms in the house
  • SNOW! 
  • Running the childhood train set that not only moves, but has lights, sounds, and smoke! The whole shebang! 
  • Setting up the Nativity sets (yes, plural in my family) and moving the wise men closer each day
  • Peppermint hot cocoa by a fireplace with rosy cheeks from playing outside
  • And last but not least...Midnight Mass! The reason why we celebrate Christmas in the first place! (this years midnight mass' 2nd reading was particularly pretty dang great!)
