Everyone is running around shopping, and baking , then wrapping getting ready
for that special day when Santa arrives.
The little ones with lists a mile long and the excitement of the jolly old self
in his red suit.
I'm sitting here remembering how my little ones were always so excited, looking through
the Sears toy catalogue circling everything in sight. I loved watching their faces light up
every time that catalogue came you knew that Christmas was just around the corner.
Out shopping early in September with other mothers making sure some of their wishes came true.
Now my children are all grown with families of their own going through the same steps as I once did.
Cards written and mailed
Tree up and decorated ,
Presents bought and wrapped
Groceries still to get, turkey, homemade stuffing, cranberries to boil down,
creamed cauliflower, turnip, carrots, parsnips, yams, mashed potatoes, and gravy......
hot cherry pie,
lemon meringque pie
cherry cheese cake
Does this sound like your Christmas!
Christmas music playing in the background, missing the sounds of little feet
reminiscing of things past.
Wouldn't change anything for the world.
My latest painting!
