Please indulge me... and pay special attention to my DGD (the 2nd little girl) as she says the most important line in the Nativity Story...
"Today in the town of David, a savior has been born to you...He is Christ the Lord"
(She sounds like Linus! Too cute too cute.)
Christmas Eve day dawned icy and snowy.
Glad we didn't have to go to work.
This is my mom making MY most favorite Christmas cookies. I indulged in three of them today. It was hard to stop!
We are having a nice dinner tonight, prime rib ( not Madl's, but it will have to do), baked potatoes and spinach souffle. We already had Hot Hot Hot HOT Chocolate! I think I may have exceeded my sugar limit for today.
And don't forget why we celebrate this day...its not the food, or the gifts, its not even the wonderful family we have been given...and on an ordinary day such as this
The Glorious Impossible came into being...

You must listen, I had not heard this before...it is a fun song and seems to go very well with the nativity that my oldest granddaughter set up when she was 2...even at that age she seemed to know that all eyes were on the Baby Jesus!

They fell in love.
"to you my dear...
If I could have just one wish,
I would wish to wake up everyday
to the sound of your breath on my neck,
the warmth of your lips on my cheek,
the touch of your fingers on my skin,
and the feel of your heart beating with mine...
Knowing that I could never find that feeling
with anyone other than you." Unknown
They got married and
"when he held out his arms,
the world itself wrapped around me
and held me tight."
(quote from storypeople.com)
and had a family.
"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person." Unknown
"When the last speck of fairy dust is gone, and you are married to exactly the person you married and not any fantasy of your own, you find out whether you have what it takes to make it through a few more decades of togetherness. It takes commitment, it takes forgiveness, it takes resignation and compromise, but with all of this, you still have to feel tenderness. The person you see in those eyes that meet yours across the pillow, or the kitchen table or over the head of the child whose hands you hold...
Happy 37th anniversary my Handsome!

I must tell you a Fall Fairy story. I was yelling(can you believe it) at the tiny Fall Fairy (many years ago) to pick up her doll clothes and she said what is now a very famous line in our family.
We have the best conversations.
