Something's missing

In the midst of the construction I suddenly felt him missing. Suddenly noticed the Thomas-sized hole beside my chair in the kitchen.

I stopped, looked out at the gray sky drizzling cold rain down onto the freshly fallen snow, and told him, for the millionth time, that I miss him.

Sometimes, despite my best efforts, this is what Christmas looks like in our house.

The house is gorgeous.

I am so sorry. I wish I could grant a Christmas miracle and have time reverse and start over and turn out good this time.
Beautiful Gingerbread house.

You are so talented-- as a writer and as a baker. That house is beautiful.

I second Shinny's wish for a Christmas miracle. I really, really wish we could do that for you.
