Tonight was our Annual Christmas Neighborhood Open House and it turned out great. It was not as well attended as in previous years, but we were grateful for those who did get to come. As I looked around my CLEAN HOUSE (that's one of the perks of inviting people over :), I thought of the song ... The Christmas Waltz.
Frosted window panes, candles gleaming inside
Painted candy canes on the tree
Santa's on his way, he's filled his sleigh with things
Things for you and for me
It's that time of year when the world falls in love
Ev'ry song you hear seems to say "Merry Christmas,
"May your New Year dreams come true"
And this song of mine in three-quarter time
Wishes you and yours the same thing, too
I just love having our house filled with friends, for the opportunity to talk and really connect with each other, as well as do a lot of laughing yes... it was a fun evening! And of course my favorite part was being able to say Merry Christmas to everyone. It does seem like there is more love in the world at Christmas time. You have to admit, wouldn't it be great if everyone, felt like that all year long?
My knees are hurting bad, but that is only because I was up a lot today. It is late and I need to head to bed, I wish our home was big enough to invite all of you over for our Christmas Open House. By the way, that photo isn't of my house, it is too white! Have a wonderful night and thanks for being an important part of our lives! And don't forget to take the opportunity every time you can... to wish people a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
