This Christmas

This Christmas looks like a crooked tree with a Y2K star. It sounds like Addie's boisterous laugh at Adam Sandler. It tastes like my amazing (tweaked) Toll House cookies. It feels like the ants in Henry's dancin' pants. It smells like the rain at the drive-in movies.

It's E next to me, on the couch while I crochet furiously. It's dinners at the dining room table with the TV off. It's Marmalade, making her home on a towel in the kids' bathroom. It's flannel sheets and a bed that won't release me. It's three hour naps we take as a family. It's Shrek, and Enchanted, and Bedtime Stories, and Santa Clauses one through three. It's Ninja Turtles on the Xbox.

It's good.
