The fire is stoked...

For many years now... our son has insisted on having a treasure map... to help him find his Christmas presents. So, every year, the last thing that Mrs. Neo and I do before heading off to bed... is hide the presents around the house and make up silly, rhyming couplets that point to The Boy's loot.

We also... without fail... have chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast on Christmas Day.

Some day in the future, we hope to have some similar sort of ritual... with our grandchildren.

Merry Christmas to all... time to catch some zees.
