Coal And Switches

December is a very intense month for my kids. Packages are arriving in the mail on a nearly daily basis and they are aquiver with curiosity about what's in those boxes.

Today a box arrived, I opened it and checked the contents, then immediately closed it and headed off to hide it.

"Christmas presents?" Katie asked hopefully.

"It's just a box full of coal and switches," I told her.

She nodded her head toward Emily and told me wisely, "I knew she was going to get some."
