Some Christmas Eve Magic....

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care.
But, this Christmas Eve morn my children
will find a bedpost stocking awaiting to be opened when they awake.
This will surely be pure joy to open their stockings in bed.
They can pull it under their covers, clasp the contents and furiously
unwrap each little package with glee.

( I captured this sweet photo of my daughter
sleeping away after I hung her stocking in her room...
she will be so surprised.
It was too dark in my son's room to get
a snapshot without a flash waking him up.
They will be so surprised...
Oh the anticipation of Christmas. How fun!)

And, what they will find is a magic recipe used by Victorians so long ago.
I am bringing it back!
This is what each will receive and will also give
an extra forty winks of sleep to Mom & Dad.
Something to eat,
something to read,
something to play with
and something they need!
