Maggie just knows that everyone gets tired of the same old thing all the time. Sure cookies are great but there is no doubt in her mind that everyone will love this special treat Mama is baking today. She better tell Mama to make extra because Santa will probably want to take some home to his wife and the elves.
I love the following Christmas film(s) I can’t think of one.
I don’t care for the following Christmas film(s)…apparently, Christmas movies haven’t made an impression on me, can’t think of one I didn’t like either.
At the holidays, I cannot resist the food!
A favourite holiday memory of mine is the year we went as a family to get a tree and putting it up with all the decorations and tinsel. It was the prettiest tree ever. After we sat looking at it for awhile and feeling quite proud of ourselves we went to the kitchen and sat down to supper. Before we finished supper we heard a quiet tinkling from the living room then a whoosh and a crash. We ran in there to see our beautiful tree flat out on the floor. After a stunned silence, we laughed hilariously and pulled the tree back up and wired it to the wall. Even though it looked a bit bedraggled we loved it even more because of the laughter and knowing what a great story it would be for years to come.
1.I have a hard time finding a gift for the person whose name I draw for the gift exchange at work.
2.I have no problem finding a gift for the person whose name I didn’t draw for the gift exchange at work.
3.One of the best gifts I ever gave was the “mother’s ring” I gave to my mother. It has the birthstones of my brothers and me. There is a diamond, a topaz, and an aquamarine.She was so excited! I have the ring now and call it my sibling ring.
4.One of the best gifts I ever received was my cat, Dolly. She was given to me by a friend of my brother and came at a time when I needed another heartbeat living with me. She was six weeks old when she came to me and nineteen years when she left. She was the perfect Diva.
After months of thinking about it, seeking advice, going back and forth about what to do, and being a bit crazed I have made my decision. Can’t tell you what it is just yet
but after New Years I will.
I am almost done with Christmas shopping. I don’t do anything major in the way of gifts, just little thought gifts. Usually, I make something but this year I did not. I might make cookies or something, though.
The bit of holiday decorating I do is done.
I am ready for the holiday and it isn’t even the week of the big day.
