It's Christmas time

                    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
                                                     Baking done.......

Groceries still to get, turkey, homemade stuffing, cranberries to boil down,
creamed cauliflower, turnip, carrots, parsnips, yams, mashed potatoes, and gravy......

                             Desert.......Ice cream,
                                       hot cherry pie,
                                       lemon meringque pie
                                       plum duff
                                       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.

Decorating done!

My latest painting!

                                                            Love to all!!
