Merry Christmas

Hubby liked the quote from my last year Christmas blog so much that he asked me to post it again, so here it is …

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

I also love that quote because Christmas is so much more than presents and I think you feel that more and more as you get older. We no longer need physical things but we love family time. Yes I do get excited about decorations and Christmas baking but that is because they all bring back memories for me of when our children were young and how much fun Christmas was. Now that they are out on their own they are forming new traditions with their husbands, wives, and little ones and it is so neat to watch that. However the traditions that tug at my heart are the ones that they grew up with and still continue 🙂

I am spending the early hours of Christmas morning snuggling with my five month old granddaughter who is teething and not sleeping well … and I am one happy grandma.

From hubby and I we wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Until next time …
