Merry Christmas

Charlie's ice....darn, I forgot my skates.....


My little nativity, Rebecca bought for me at a grade school gift fair. She is a senior this year.

And my favorite poem for Christmas is by Edmund Vance Cooke.

"Tis not the weight of jewel or plate,
Or the fondle of silk or fur;
Tis the spirit in which the gift is rich,
As the gifts of the wise ones were;
And we are not told whose gift was gold...
Or whose was the gift of myrrh."

That is quite an ice pond there. I bet the kids really have fun on it. I'd never heard that poem before. It's a good one to be sure. Merry Christmas

Peggy, living in WV I’ve never seen an ice rink in someone’s yard. Is that what that first picture is? That is so cool. I love your nativity. I know it will always mean a lot to you :) Great poem.

I wish every one a very happy and prosperous New Year. It is that time of the year where we open our hearts and hands and welcome this new year with a blast. I celebrated Christmas with my family and had blast celebration it with them and it really left me with some unforgettable memories.
