From My Blog to yours ~~Merry Christmas !!!

May you and your family feel the warmth of the babe in the manager sent to be our Redeeming Saviour

"Christmas is the time of year to reflect with thoughtful prayer,....

to cast aside of all bad thought and habits you expressed throughout the year.

We can all join together to celebrate Jesus birth,....a renewal and beginning right here on planet earth.

Jesus left all of us a message while here on earth,to love,to care.

his words were ever simple,plain and so very,very clear:

"Be kind to one another throughout the coming year".

Christmas is the time of year to spend with the young and old, the needy, greedy and the poor.a time to love,a time to share.

let us all spread our love around with all our heart and soul,....

for the love of your neighbor should never turn so cold.


Merry Christmas

Christmas Remembered (4)

Christmas Memories I cherish each one .

This Christmas as with each and every Christmas, I recall the love
my dad had for Christmas, from taking us to pick the perfect tree out in the woods,
to putting up the lights outside, buying cases of fresh fruit , nuts and candy.

First thinking about our beauitful big wonderful smelling  Christmas tree , we decorated with these beautiful
glass ornaments  ( Mother would say be careful not to break these) , the big thick silver rope, multicolored lights, the star sitting on top.
and lots of Icicles, my mother loved the trees to be covered with icicles . My job
was to water the tree each night ,  I loved crawling up under that big beautiful green
tree  and watering it each night,.the sitting there looking at all those bright beautiful
Red, Green, Yellow , white and Blue lights .

My dad and I would put the lights up outside all around the porch , better yet
I just mostly was in the way I am sure as he was climbing up the ladder tacking them up with
such ease and then I got to turn the lights on ............Beautiful !!

The smell of Christmas floods my mind , I can smell all that wonderful
fresh fruit , Those big Oranges , tangerines, Apple, Grapes, they just smell
better at Christmas. Even now they have the better smell .
My dad shared with everyone near as he would buy many cases of each
our stocking were hung up to be filled with Fruit on Christmas morning .

I better run to the store and get some of the good Smelling
Fruits ...

Hoping others will share their memories as well

Jesus The Ultimate Gift

This is Christmas not the tinsel, not the giving and receiving, not even the carols

Click on the link below

 Jesus The Ultimate Gift

Christmas Rmemebered (3)

The Christmas Memory is the some where near the mid 60's
 The Easy Bake Oven  it was turquoise in color and had a fake stove top.
I remember it came  with several packages of different cake mixes.

The Alden's Catalog picture looked probably like the picture above .  I am sure I wore
the pages out of the Christmas Catalog.

One day before Christmas My brother who was four years older than me, we were
left home alone.  My Parents out finishing their Shopping no doubt.
My brother says to me there is no Santa .  I say "no way "!
He then says I will show you there is no Santa , so we go out to the Garage and
he opens up the car trunk .  Oh my , there in the trunk lay my Easy Bake oven.
When My parents returned , I run and said  can I have my Easy Bake Oven
Lloyd showed it to me its in the trunk .  My parents of course didn't let me have
it and told my brother his basketball was going back which was in the trunk also.
Christmas Morning Lloyd and I both had our Christmas Presents under the tree  , I baked for
many days to come,  I loved this little oven.
This is a Christmas remembered for the year of the Easy Bake Oven and finding out
about Santa ...

May you recall those wonderful Christmas memories

Christmas Remembered (2)

This Christmas memory would have been early 1960's
To be exact I think the year was 1962
that was the year for the doll with the red dress

I  remember asking for this gift ,
Back in my day it was Alden's
Catalogs to look through
for Christmas.

I can see me sitting looking at those big Alden's Christmas catalogs
on the couch with my mother , showing her what I wanted
I also think they were advertised on the Tv.
I received my doll  from Santa , the Chatty Cathy doll , its talked
just like me !
Chatty Cathy was the most gorgeous doll ever
she said elven different things  by pulling the string
" I love you.

Do you love me

Please brush my hair.

What can we do now

Please change my dress

Give me a kiss.

I'm so tired

Lets have a party

Please take me with you

Lets play school

May I have a cookie

I received this doll and something happened ~~~it would not talk ~~~ My mother  called the company telling them of chatty not being so Chatty as she made this call I stood right beside her in our dinning room holding on to her apron waiting to see what we could do for my new doll
Mother said we will
have to send her  back to the Toy Store to be fixed . Ok I said so sadly .
I said goodbye and Chatty we will get you fixed as we boxed her up
I think as a four year old I am sure I cried for Chatty to hurry back
The sad thing is I dont remember getting her back .

Who out there in blog land got their own Chatty Cathy ?

A Christmas Remembered (1)

I stepped out of the car in my home town  last week to have my mind travel back in time,
                                                    Christmas 1974.

Standing in front of this window in 1974 I saw this beautiful white gold ,  sparkling Opal surrounded by diamonds ring .
I go  in try the ring on it was  the most beautiful ring,  I had found  what I wanted
for Christmas.
At home that evening I run in all excited as I had found what I just had to have,  telling my dad and mother that I had found what I wanted for Christmas, the Opal and Diamond ring and where it was
.Every day  walking up town I would stop and look at this Opal and Diamond
ring in the window standing there , wishing, hoping I would get this from my parents .
A few weeks before Christmas Standing looking in this window again ,the Opal and Diamond
ring I so wanted was gone. I go in and ask about  the Opal and Diamond ring that was in the window
do you still have it ? the answer came "no ,we sold the only one we had the other day "  My heart
That evening I go home upset  and tell my parents that I went by the store and the ring is gone and they
cant get another one .  I wanted this ring so bad .   My dad says "Sorry I guess someone bought it for their Christmas "  Still upset I tell them I cant believe that you would let someone else buy the ring , my dad again shrugging his shoulders as if to say sorry ......
Christmas eve opening gifts I was in shock when I opened one and there right before my eyes
I held in my hand the Opal and Diamond ring that I had so wanted , it was and still is beautiful
as you can see below in the picture .

I cherish this memory and the store window that brought it all back as though I was standing there
wanting this ring again .
Thankful for the parents that made this and many others sweet memories ..................
