Keep It Simple



“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, 

just different.

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!
