Saturday night the girls we sent the girls to the Nutcracker as part of their Christmas gift. Amy is the only one that had ever been there before, but she was little then. For Lauren and Angie it was their first time and as you can tell from their faces, they had a wonderful time!
I feel so blessed that we were able to share this with our girls this year. I would have loved for all of us to go together but …they had a great time. I love the holidays and everything about it!
Christmas comes with children singing,
Christmas comes with sleigh bells ringing,
Christmas comes with frosty nights,
Christmas comes with snowball fights.
Christmas comes with Santa Claus,
Christmas comes with snowy floors,
Christmas comes with robins and reindeer,
Christmas comes with a hearty cheer.
Christmas comes with gold, frankincense and myrrh,
Christmas comes with Jesus' birth,
Christmas comes with angels from afar,
Christmas comes with a wondrous star.
Christmas comes now, at last,
Christmas comes, like in the past,
Christmas comes after such a long wait,
Christmas comes and it will be great.

“A child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark.” ~ Chinese Proverb
“Christmas is not a time or a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” ~ Calvin Coolidge
