A Creature Was Stirring

christmas hohoho
Somewhere in the house

christmas time
I heard funny sounds

christmas angels
But it wasn’t a mouse

christmas mantle 1
We’d loaded a tree

christmas tree and horse
The new skinny one
christmas tree and reid

Bought just for them

christmas tree and caroline
We’d had so much fun

christmas mantle 3
And so we decided

christmas mantle 2
To put out more trees

christmas tree sale
But I’d promised a surprise

reid caroline fireplace dec 2011 no 2

And I’d heard their pleas
reid caroline reading and cd player
In this high-tech world

We all need a break

caroline reading with my glasses
And they get such a kick

Out of things that they make

reid painting (2)
So Christmas came early

caroline in beret (2)
For Caroline and for Reid
Reid dec 2011 (2)
Those tiny hands held chalk
tiny hands chalkboard 3 (2)

And erasers they’d need

reid is so excited about his new old chalkboard
So the sounds I had heard

chalkboards and kids 3
Weren't musical chords

chalkboards and kids 2

Twas chalk clickety-click
chalkboards and kids
On new, old chalkboards!

caroline is not really writing her name

Merry Christmas everyone!

Linking with Faded Charm's White Wednesday.

I enjoyed reading your posting this morning
as I sit here quietly sipping my coffee.
The season IS about children both big and small
as they celebrate the one who is Father to us all!
Merry Christmas you guys!
Much love,
Ginger (and Larry and Frankie and Wallace)
