Merry Christmas Eve

We are just hours away from Christmas. Soon everyone will be here and the house will be full of cheer. By the time the grandkids arrive they have opened their gifts from Santa and are ready to eat a big breakfast. The smell of the bacon greets them when they walk in the door. They sit around telling us excitedly what Santa brought them, as they are eating. Oh the joy on their faces as they describe everything in great detail, is what Christmas is all about. It is just a wonderful thing to experience. Before you know it they have eaten their whole plate of food just as their stories end. Then they realize that it is time to gather together in the living room to open the gifts we had gotten them. With a grin from ear to ear they excitedly begin opening them to see what is inside. Our gift is to be able to watch their happy faces as they tear through the paper and get a peek at what it is. We know that it is for only a short time that they are little and squeal with joy, and we don't want to miss a minute of it. We know it is family gatherings and moments like this that is the reason for the season. Merry Christmas Everyone and to all a good night
