HO HO HO...

...Merry Christmas


"It's the time of year when the world falls in love..."

If I keep saying it...will you believe me.



My lapel pin from childhood.

This is going to be the greatest Christmas season ever.



Current mantel display in the Great Room.

Santa Claus or by whatever name you call him
is an icon of happiness and pure love.


Santa toy from my first birthday.
It is now an antique :)


Jolly, silly, chubby and generous.
Out of the kindness of his heart he gives to those who believe.

But, what is it that we are suppose to believe.
In our home we believe in love and the power that it holds over us.




Love doesn't act alone...it brings along with it so many more emotions.
Happiness, joy and kindness are just a few you will find.
Fill your heart with love and you will find your soul is lifted to a new place.




Believe in love and its magic.
Although it is important to remember...
the real reason for the season is the Birth of Christ and I honor
that moment every day of this Christmas Season and never forget
it's importance in our life.



Keep Believing.

Hey Silver Bella buddy! Glad to see your post. The tree looks so beautiful. The one we cut down two years ago here in Texas was pathetic. I could show you pictures..you would die!! Now have a lovely new Martha Stewart tree... with no smell. Miss you guys and that fellowship!! But Texas had SNOW today. The high school kids went nuts, it was a hoot!
