Twas the night before Christmas....

Well, here we go.

Sebastian is excited, but he's still tolerable. I'm guessing that will change as the day progresses. We've only had to track Santa on Norad twice so far, but I'm sure that within hours we will fall into our usual Christmas eve pattern of sitting at the computer and refreshing over and over and over again.

All my packages that we sent out, appear to have been delivered, but I'll know more about that once my mother is home and verifies that her package is indeed waiting there for her, like the UPS webtracking says it is.

That battery pack I ordered for overnight shipping two days ago, is not here. I'm pretty disappointed about that. One of the major toys he's getting, and he won't be able to play with it.

The gift I ordered for my father-in-law is not here either. I ordered it on the 7th, their ad promised next day shipping, it didn't ship until the 15th, and it's still not here.

Looks like I have some nasty feedback to leave on Ebay after I've had a glass of wine tonight.

I've got everything out and ready to go for Christmas eve dinner tonight. I'm going to make Penne in vodka sauce, and my favorite cheesy bread recipe. If we're lucky, the vodka will make it into the sauce.

Sebastian and I made more chocolate crinkle cookies last night since they were a big hit and disappeared, he and I had a good time rolling them into balls and dipping them into powdered sugar. I would like to have some time to do cut out sugar cookies today, because I think it would be a great way to pass the time before Sebastian needs to be in bed.

Still need to clean up my disaster of a living room. On top of all that, I'm hoping to have just a bit of time today to knit, just for sanity's sake.

Carrots are ready for Rudolph.

A big shout out to Andi for sending me such a terrific package that arrived yesterday. Best coffee I've had..hell, the only *real* coffee I've had in like 9 years. Say "hi" to our friend Stephanie for me. :)

Anyway, lots to do but not much time, so it's short and sweet today.
