    Did Mom tell you she found It Came Upon a Midnight Clear and her and dad watched it last night??? I told her it was worth big bucks and that we’d have to watch it on Christmas day when we’re there. 🙂

    Ditto on white lights, cinnamon scents, and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

    Love you!
