“Not believe in Santa Claus!
You might as well not believe in fairies!”
― Francis Pharcellus Church
Children and Christmas, they go together
and when your children are grown and gone,
Christmas becomes different.
Not in a bad way,
Me, I try to find ways to bring a little of the
joy I found being a parent at Christmas time
to my grown kids. Today, I cooked up a huge
batch of spaghetti and took it over to my son's
family, along with a loaf of french bread,
some goooey cupcakes, and gifts.
I wrapped a box of dog treats for their dogs,
I gave my son his favorite jerky and beef stew lunches.
I gave my daughter in law a pair of wonderfully soft
socks, and cute lap blankets for the two teenagers.
(along with a box of Mike and Ike candy!)
I also fixed up a dish of Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark
(and added in some Smirnoff Peppermint Twist).
Simple gifts, wrapped simply,
designed to bring a smile to their faces!
Keeping Christmas simple ... that's me!
