Christmas - I am grateful

Some of the things I am grateful for on Christmas, in no particular order.

Faith.  I am grateful to God for everything. This is a lovely folk art wreath a lady in my Sunday School class made for me.  Isn't it charming and lovely?  All of us went to the Christmas Eve service together.  The music was wonderful.  We had communion and passed the Light.  It was great - He's the reason for the season.

Bounty.  We have all we need and then some, even after serious belt tightening.  The Stooges got a lot of practical gifts and they were very grateful.

Family.  Here is Larry, ready for church last night.  This is a suit we found at the thrift store prior to my brother's wedding.  A friend altered it, and it looks great on him.  My family is wonderful.  And I have a great extended family, and a lot of friends.  I am very lucky, and grateful.

Love. I love all my boys a lot, and they love me. And DH too!  But there's nothing like puppy love.  Abby is a good mama. 

Aren't the puppies cute?  They were frolicking in the back yard this morning.

Unexpected pleasures.  Here are the cats enjoying the Christmas detritus.  It pleases them; they love the mess.  Then they come and love on me.  I love my kitties.

A sense of humor.  You may have noticed I'm a little quirky.  (Only a LITTLE bit....)  This year, all the Stooges got some sort of wierd windup toy in their stocking.  This one made us laugh and laugh.

This is a crèche that is set up in the living room.  I looked down and there was Santa in the middle, why?  DH said, "They're all gathered 'round watching the game."  So bad.

Merry Christmas, y'all!
