Whether watching NORAD track Santa's travels and listening to carols while doing a little more holiday cooking (me) or stacking and restacking a pile of coasters (Piper) or playing Gameboy in collaboration (Ben and Thomas) or running a couple of last minute errands (Mark), the whole house is getting ready for Christmas tomorrow.
And Christmas is getting ready for us.
