Night before Christmas

Was the Night before Christmas and the soldier was watching to see if Santa would arrive. I am sure Sophie and Grace are wondering as they are so far from home.  But Grandma has assured them that Santa knows they are here.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas,  drive safe during this busy time. This is the time we celebrate the birth of Jesus, remember this is the reason for the season...
