Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve has come so soon so that day can't be far,
we look tonight for the promise of the Christmas star.
I know the day will be so bright in the heart of every child.
I do hope the travel weather will turn out so very mild.

I can remember as a child and listen through the night,
for any sound that may give me that special sight.
The sound didn't come, so off I'd drift to wake the next day.
I went down the stairs to try to find if Santa stopped my way.

He always did and awe and wonder would fill my heart.
I thought of how Santa covered all the world to my part.
Today will pass and it will be a wondrous time to see
as with my wife we together share the wonders to be.

A Merry Christmas to all my friends this coming season.

This are some of the Christmas Cookies we made with the grand kids for the season. They are all individually decorated with your special designs. This tray was already in the cool garage letting the harden. Have a great Christmas Day.

Grandpa FG, those cookies are down right scrumptious. Scrumptious a work to be used rarely for things that truly are scrumptious!

Have a wonderful family get together for Christmas.
Hope you get a fish in your stocking tonight!

I hope you have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! :)

It's so nice to have family near around the holidays - lucky you! Baking and decorating Christmas cookies with your grandkids is something they will always remember.
Hope you had a lovely Xmas!

The cookies look great! My 22 year old came into the kitchen on Christmas Eve and asked ever so sweetly, Mom, can we make cookies like we did when I was little? My heart melted and that was my Christmas right there. Hope your Christmas was great and your New Year will be too.
