"T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar- plums danced in their heads...
My husband read this last night with the kids as they gathered by the Christmas Tree; it could be the sound of his voice but they listened. Imagine that ! It was a beautiful night to be surrounded with family and friends on such a joyous occasion. And the kids- there were so many of them including our grandbaby Cade that adapted so well with everyone around him. He is just mesmerized by the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree and in his eyes I see the true meaning of Christmas and the family around me.
Happy Christmas to all !!!
