Good Evening, dear hearts..
Well, I am almost ready... smile..
Actually, I still have quite a bit to do but the candles are lit, the tree is trimmed, some presents are wrapped and there is a bit of baking finished..
There is cleaning to do, desserts to make, more gifts to wrap, a bit more decorating that I would like to do and a turkey and ham to cook...
So excited !!
Our babies will all be here on Christmas Day, Lord willing and it is to be a lovely sunny day..
There is even a bit of snow on the ground..
God is good..
Just shared a few pics of our tree and such..
I love this old Christmas song...
Just click on the words above..
Such a beautiful song that reminds me of Christmas many years ago when we were young...
I thought it would be nice to wrap my darling's presents in pretty papers and pretty ribbons of blue..
Do you suppose he will get the connection? grin..
I remember our first Christmas Day together 45 years ago..
We were living in St. John and were planning on getting up first thing in the morning and packing up the gifts and Shonda and being home at Mom and Dad's in time for dinner..
We woke up to a humongous storm and there was no way we could get there..
We had not bought a turkey or anything since we thought we would be at our parents so we had to eat just hot dogs.. grin..
Terry gave me a sweet old bureau set as we called them then..
A mirror, brush and comb and a magazine rack which he wrapped in newspaper.. The sweet guy..
Then he dressed up in his coat and such and started shovelling all the way to the main street...
Can you imagine?
When he finished that we packed everything up and he put chains on the car and we headed to Salisbury..
By the grace of God we arrived at the foot of our street and had to walk up Boyd Street to get home as the side streets were not ploughed and it was supper time..
I still remember walking into the house..
My parents couldn't believe it and my sister was so excited!
They were happy to have Shonda there for her first Christmas..
Such sweet dear memories...
I have been missing my Dad the last few days..
He loved Christmas so much...
Well, my dear sweet friends I want to wish you the very best Christmas !!
May you put Christ first in your day as we remember the wonderful gift that was given to us on that day so long ago...
And may you create many sweet memories for the pages of your heart...
