My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Oh Christmas tree....Oh Christmas tree

 How lovely are your  Branches!   Children... Here is our  Sweet Charlie, the  youngest addition to our family...He is 26 month old already. Where has the time gone? I really do wish we could be with him for Christmas this year.. to see the Holiday through his precious eyes.  This is the first Christmas tree  he is decorating .. Can you wonder what he is thinking about a tree in the house with  all those bright lights, bobbles and balls..he lives in Denver.  (a long way from Oregon) . I am hoping the plans for a Spring visit from them is still on the table for discussion......however  I am grateful for the many pictures his parents send. My wish for next year will be that we do share Christmas with him and his Dad, Mom  and his older Sister, ( she is visiting them from Washington State University)
This year we will be with our daughters and their husbands  and the other 3 grandsons in Washington. This  will make my Christmas complete. Many memories to Cherish, Photos to be taken, meals to share and homes full of love and stories later to tell.
Family is so important to me.. the old traditions change as our lives change and as our children move on with their own lives they do make traditions of their own. We send them into the world as it is and hopefully they can make it a better place..Christmas is one of the  times I remember those past Christmas' when our own children were small and how much joy they brought to us. If you are fortunate to be with your grandchildren this year kiss & hug them and enjoy the  laughter and excitement as they see it... They are this age only once....and ever so precious.

Love your thoughts in this post. So true that our children grown up and start their own traditions. We can't be with them all every year and we have to be thankful for the times we are together. $ of my 6 grandchildren also live near Denver. 2 are on their way to Ohio as I write this. The other two we won't see at Christmas. I was there for Thanksgiving and I cherish that time. Merry CHristmas and enjoy your time with your family.
