Fa la la la la, la la la la

Christmas Memories
Decorating the tree, finding the perfect gift,
taking great care & pride
in wrapping each gift,
The fresh smell of pine,
Itching from angel hair as you passed by the tree,
Stringing popcorn and cranberries,
Mom's cinnamon rolls, , oranges studded with cloves,
Christmas carols, singing & listening,, the jingle of bells,
A Sleigh Ride, Socks,
the neighbors lighted houses,
the hustle and bustle of stores,
Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life,
Scrooge, Charlie Brown Christmas, going to church at
midnight, staying up late,
Reba, Lucy, and Velma singing, and laughing,
Vicki and Jonn, and all those little ones,
Harvey Wallbangers, playing pokino, mom's fudge,
Gladys,"s first Christmas, The Christmas Bell Pull
on the bathroom door, Kiddles, Kiddles doll house,
Rigatoni and meatballs, Vicki's cheeseball,
Reba on the piano, Velma-Ringy Christmas Bells,
Our Savior and Lord

Show me your ways O Lord, teach me your paths,
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth
and my rebellious ways; according to your love
remember me, for you are good, O Lord. Psalms 25: 4-7

Those are wonderful memories! That's why I try so hard to make my kids' Chirstmas so special. Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog! Merry Christmas!

You've captured everything I could remember, all the way down to the bell next the the bathroom in the family room. Doom & gloom to those that don't make it out before the music stops!

Fond memories of my violin/piano Christmas duets with Reba. Still have many recordings.
