Tonight's the big night. Children will fall asleep looking out the window for those reindeer pulling the sled full of toys and Saint Nicholas, too.

I arrived at my brother, Rick's yesterday afternoon. It was a nasty rainy day. Traffic was light but Danny was whiney. He's gotten used to me stopping at the WaWa and take him out for a little walk. He knows about five minutes ahead of time that we are getting near. He also knew when we were getting near Rick's.

We are slowly getting ready for the day. After breakfast, we will be going to the cemetery and the model train store right next to it. Rick needs a part for his platform. I need to pick up a centerpiece for my aunt's gift and take it to her. We'll be going to my nephew's late this afternoon to see the new baby and then to Holmes Church at night.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Dear Karol,

You are so right about the children being excited about Santa coming tonight. We were at our son and daughter-in-laws home for Christmas Eve and there were five grandchildren there. I didn't really think this was such a big thing, but the grandchildren were just in awe when I very seriously mentioned that Grandpa & I had seen Santa Claus in Bedford on our way to their home. Their eyes were as big as saucers. And, then, I said, we went a little farther and saw one of his elves delivering some toys. I didn't mean it to be a fib, in fact, I guess I didn't think about how it would affect them. But, they were most interested and felt they needed to go right to sleep when it was bedtime. They were just joyful to watch after hearing the news. They are more than ready to awaken tomorrow morning and see what is under the tree and if the milk and cookies are gone. Our grandchildren are so very precious (as are all other grandparent's grandchildren too I believe.)

Wishing you a very nice Christmas Karol and I so hope that 2008 will bring you great peace and joy. God Bless you my dear friend. Love, Ruth
