'twas the night before christmas

It's Christmas tomorrow. Thinking about this made me think about all the times growing up that I had such a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep for that matter. I think this routine lasted far too long into my teen years but a happy camper I certainly was. You see unlike some friends of mine, us kids from Timpview got EVERYTHING we wanted on Christmas. (kidding, not ALL of us always got everything we wanted, but some friends that didn't go to Timpview like to think that we did). Anyway, at some point in my life growing up happened like it always seems to do and this can't-fall-asleep-or-even-stay-asleep christmas routine slowly died out. It's not that I am not excited about Christmas, because I definitely am, but a good night's rest and sleeping in is just about at the top of my list on what I want for Christmas. So now that it is getting late and midnight has passed (which means it will probably say I posted this on Christmas day but really it's still the eve) It's time to retire Christmas Eve and get some sleep in before the big day. I hope you all have wonderful Christmas' and most importantly remember the reason we really celebrate this holiday. Christ: The Real Gift of Christmas

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
