It’s Christmas Eve

Gifts tonight for the Grandkids
christmas_snowman_9 Tonight’s the night Kevin, Lesley, Kara, and Zachary come over for Christmas Eve snacks and Christmas gifts. It’s true joy that to see your grandkids tear into a wrapped Christmas gift with a gleam in their eye and watch their expression and excitement. Oh what fun!

We’ll miss having the rest of our family with us, but we did enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with them.

Do you remember much about Christmas when you were growing up? Do remember shaking gifts and trying to guess what they were? Do you remember those packages coming from a relative by the postman? Do you remember the bowl of nuts with the nutcracker and those little prong things to help you retrieve the nuts? SNOWMANDo you remember those red, green and white Christmas cookies in the shapes of Christmas? Did you remember putting out cookies and a Coke for Santa to enjoy after he delivered your toys? Do you remember Perry Como, Bing Crosby and the others singing the Christmas songs? Do you remember when Santa only had eight reindeer? Remember when Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer was “invented”? Well, I sure do!

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas that’s filled with the warmth of love and happiness. I hope your giving to others has warmed many a heart, including your own.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
It’s Christmas Eve.
I hope the Grinch did not steal your Christmas.
If you have love in your heart he did not,
so you can relax.

Quote of the Day
This December,
That love weighs more than gold!

Joke of the Day

A lady is walking down the street to work and she sees a parrot in a pet store. The parrot says to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly."

Well, the lady is furious! And she storms past the store to her work. On the way home she saw the same parrot in the window and the parrot said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." Well, she was incredibly ticked now.

The next day see saw the same parrot and the parrot said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." The lady was so ticked that she went into the store and said that she would sue the store and kill the bird.

The store manager said, "That's not good." and promised he wouldn't say it again.

When the lady walked past the store after work the parrot said to her,"Hey lady." She paused and said, "Yes?" and the bird said, "You know."
