Christmas Eve 'Magic'

This'll be a quickie, it's unplanned, and unedited because Iv'e still got loads of Christmas prep to get through before tomorrow, but something magical happened this evening, and I couldn't resist sharing it with you all. 

'The Body Guard' (that's hubs to the newbies) and I took 'Littlie' to the Church at the top of our road this evening for the crib service, on the way back, 'Littlie' looked up from her wheelchair and suddenly began squealing - "look, it's Santa, it's Santa!" 
We looked up, and on seeing a group of twinkling lights moving across the sky immediately began squealing along with her, "Oh my God Littlie", says I - "you're right, it is Santa, it really is.. eeeek!"

Hubs and I went along with the magic of the moment, egged on by 'Littlies' amazement, and then.. "Oh no" said Littlie in earnest, attempting to take over the wheelchair wheels - "hurry mummy, hurry, I'm not gonna make it, he's nearly to our house, and I'm still awake!" 
Laughing, I explained that Santa was still incredibly high up, and had lots of other children to visit before getting to us, and the three of us, clothed in magic, continued back down the road to home, squealing all the way!

When we reached home 'Littlie' asked if Santa would see her if she waved to him.. "Oh yes Littlie", said I, "he's too high up for you to see him, but he will see you", and with eyes lit up like a childs eyes should be, she waved to the (sleigh) lights in the sky.
Oh! How I wish you all could of seen the joy in her eyes! - Her expression, and incredulous laughter bought tears of joy to mine. 

Of course, the moving 'sleigh shaped' lights in the dark sky this evening where probably an aeroplane..but my 'Littlie' firmly believes that we have just seen the man in red, and has gone to bed happier than Iv'e ever seen her!
I have never witnessed such joy on any of my kids faces - it was truly magical - the stuff Christmas movies are made of! 
Without a doubt, the best moments of my life so far :O) 

God bless you and all those you love

Update: - Iv'e just been told, by a friend on facebook, that what we actually saw tonight was probably ISS (International space station) which was due over Britain at around 5.30 - so there you go..mystery solved - our secret though....Littlie must never know ;o)

    1. I never realised what it was until a few hours later, and I didn't realise it was a yearly thing either, so thanks for the heads up - we'll look out for it next year too :) It really was magical!

      All the best, Kimmie x

  5. I absolutely love this post. What I love most is that you didn't know the space station was passing over - a lot of people were looking at watches saying "come on kids, let's go outside and see Santa" at the allotted time but yours was a genuine "OMG" sighting! Fantastic!
    Thanks for linking up with #WeekendBlogHop, and happy new year x

    1. Hi Vicky, I love that we didn't know about ISS too, it made the magic moments more magical :)
      it wasn't until I shared the story to facebook that I found out, until then I just assumed a (very well lit) aeroplane :)

      And, for Littlie..it really was an OMG moment, I wish you could have seen her face!

      Thanks for stopping by, Kimmie x

  6. Finally! A justification for the NASA budget that neither party can quarrel with... This is so sweet, Kimmie, and I'm glad you decided to be spontaneous and post it. Best wishes for you and Hubs and Littlie in the coming year.
