SPC (celebration...two days late!)

christmas eve
with my husband's family
which we do every year...
this year's included
2 new babies,
family home from away,
meeting family of new family joined,
lots of pictures taken,
food shared,
presents ripped open,
compliments on the new living room furniture,
12's scoffing down of her favorite meatballs on toothpicks,
shyness on my part,
the yearly singing of rita macneill's working man
followed by silent night,
long drive home,
anticipation of what the morning will bring.
