A Peaceful Christmas Day. . .
Two lovely, quiet Victorian Christmas images for you this Christmas Morning, a wonderful dark December day here with some crunchy snow on the ground and heavy cloud cover. Yours truly is enjoying a mug of coffee and time to collect my thoughts while the Grand Duchess catches a few more winks and listens quietly to her National Public Radio programs on the bedside radio. The Young Master is up and playing quietly in his room. When I peeked in through the cracked door a short while, he smiled from bed and whispered "Merry Christmas." He then asked to play in his room for a while and next asked to be tickled, something he does when he feels really well. Christmas is indeed made for children as the song suggests, and I feel truly blessed. Merry Christmas everyone!
