Since Sweet Husband works in retail, Christmas Eve is on-the-clock for him. The first few years it was a little hard for me, but I've actually come to enjoy it. The jewelry store he works at closes early, and they have a little party to celebrate the end of the busy season before everyone goes off to be with family.The Kiddo loves the store. Mostly because, well, they kinda love him too. But it's also a nice wide-open place (with mirrors!) for him to practice his locomotion.
