Merry Little Christmas

We had a merry little Christmas today when my oldest daughter, Catherine, her husband and one of my granddaughters, Hannah spent the morning with us and had a Christmas dinner. It was great to see them and spend some precious time together.

They live in Billings and Hannah had to get back for her job which is only one of the things which keep this girl incredibly busy.

Like many of you my husband and I don't have one Christmas, we have it in stages. First when the packages are sent to the girls who live far away, this one, maybe a couple others, then the sacred and beautiful Christmas Eve. Diane

I guess it would be nice to have the whole family together at once,but you get to celebrate Christmas that much longer.Hope each celebration will leave you with happy memories.

I still have all my kids at home, mostly. (some just on the weekends). But they are all together for the holidays and I love it. But I know that soon they will be going off into the world and my Xmas will be much like yours, a bit here and a bit there, celebrated over a period of days. My oldest sister has done that for many years now and she actually loves it. She has even had Xmas in July to accomodate the kids visiting from further away, and took advantage of a few days when all of them were home together that summer. Hey, I figure that Christmas is in our hearts anyway and it does not matter on what day we have it, more important is that we are with those that we love, sharing special time and making those moments become treasured memories!! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS from here to there, hugs, Debbx
