A Christmas Dinner ....

 If I can think of it in the excitement, I'll take pictures of my daughter's family today. They are coming for  dinner . The blonde in the photo is Kathy , senior year. It's the baby with Santa that I am showing. It's Emma when she was about 2. Sitting so quietly on Santa's lap. The other photo ,you can see a small part , is Emma's mommy Liz.
This is a shot of my daughter Angie's Santa collection. She has sorted and thinned out many. She also has a snowman collection. She's a teacher, so any one who teaches knows what teachers get for Christmas gifts from their students. She receives candles too. I have seen her make over every gift that she gets, so no kid ever feels like his gift would be silly. She has asked them not to bring any gifts...but you know how excited children are at Christmas, and they truly do have a giving spirit. Angie spends her own money to come up with some thing her students can make for their parents for a gift. The children love that. Today the sun is shining once it. Yesterday, the ice would not shovel way. So maybe today, we can get some more broken up to shovel away. I like the porch, steps and driveways to be clear. That's my outside job. Blessings to all of you. xoxo
