Merry Christmas All

We're on the right track for a very merry Christmas! Posting might be limited for a few days as relatives visit so stay tuned. I'll be reading as I can.

Taylor is playing with her train, a blending of hers and my husband's old train set. Notice she is in a coat but bare footed! Funny girl. Mom is in for a visit and my daughter is expected later this evening. She is local but we have little T for the day. My son is arriving from Seattle next week so the party continues through the new year.

I made Mom stop by the quilt shop today, just because I can't have a day off without stopping by there. It was lunch at St Louis Bread Co (Panera Bread for some of you). Their french onion soup bowl is awfully good.

Tomorrow we bake the pies and prep anything else we can do in advance. We'll join family for a Christmas Eve celebration and then have a more traditional meal on Christmas Day. I hope everyone will have a Merry Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family Kathy. Is that Taylor last Christmas morning? Lucky little girl!
Merry Christmas!

Thank you all. The photo of Taylor is this year. Tom got her train out of the attic and the presents are the ones my mom (behind Taylor) brought here so we just went ahead and put them under the tree rather than carry them all upstairs and then back down. She'll be a busy girl tonight when she opens presents from my- husbands side of the family (that lives next door to us)- always on the Eve- then she will come back here tomorrow morning after Santa has been to her house.

There has been only one Christmas - the rest are anniversaries. ~W.J. Cameron

When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs? ~G.K. Chesterton

Oh, I almost forgot the best one:

Roses are reddish
Violets are bluish
If it weren't for Christmas
We'd all be Jewish. ~Benny Hill
