Naturally I woke up around 3-ish, wide awake. *sigh* But I don't have to get up until 11, so I can be up a little while longer.
My wife baked the chocolate chip cookies while I wrapped Christmas presents, but I mixed the dough. Jewel was out of Nestle milk chocolate chips so I used Ghirardelli, and the result is excellent.
Meanwhile, I've had some thoughts about a Christmas story. It's about a boy--perhaps 10--who is beginning to figure out that Santa Claus is his parents. His older brother is trying to convince him that Santa is real, and--well, maybe I should just start writing the tale and see where it leads us. Hm?
