We made some Memories....

My grandma Onie spent Christmas with our family. How lucky we were! I know that after 89 Christmases that she must have some kind of memory as to Christmases as a child. On Christmas morning I crawled into bed with her, and asked what she remembered. She recalls her "Pa" only buying one toy and placing it under the tree for all four children to enjoy-It might have been a wagon, or bicycle according to Gram. It made me realize how simple life used to be. The world we live in has become so complex and materialistic. We went to church on Christmas morning, and during the sermon I looked over to see Gram grab hold of Taylor's hand and hold it....Tay caressed her hand and was a sight that made my heart skip a beat. This Christmas wasn't about the gifts we exchanged but the moments that we spent not only as a family, but with my dear Gram.

Somewhere along my an email or blog post I came across this and wrote it down- This sums this Christmas all up!

"Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly, and leave the rest to God."

It's beginning to look alot like ....

CHRISTMAS! Now, this is how I remember it to be here in MN when I was a child! Saturday we recieved several inches of snow, and my "snowblowers" were at work!

We played a little in it as well! I have not had my boots on in 3 years for fear of slipping and falling and putting my back in worse condition than it already is! But, Saturday I put them on and and plopped into a snow bank and took some fun shots of my "boys!"

I have also beeen at work with some fun "Snowy Jo" goodies from Imaginisce! I just love this line!

Hoping that you all have a wonderful Christmas-Be safe!

Happy Birthday Jesus! :)
