I will honor Christmas in my heart,

and try to keep it all the year.

~ Charles Dickens

Gonna try. I have felt so blessed this year. I love the feeling of community that I have come to know in blog~land. I found myself on Christmas Eve wondering how everybody is enjoying this special time and hoping all the while that you know that the world is a better place because of each of you.

So, I will honor Christmas...the amazing generosity of heart that is the true Christmas feeling...gonna try my best~est to honor it all the year and then some.

Christmas morn...still snowed in....yeah baby!

Our "Noel" gift to the Fam...
an oatmeal bar...

Hash brown~olas!!!

French toast ~Sneetches style...with "stars upon thars"
~ Dr. Seuss

Decorating the table is the fun~est part...

Ho, ho, ho...YUM!

It is another one of our Christmas traditions...I get up supper~dupper early on Christmas morn and set the table...the more over~the~top the it!

Christmas roast...a~la The Pioneer Woman...

Ta, ta for now....I hope that each of you find the special feeling of Christmas in your hearts and honor and keep it all the live~long year.

Although we have differences in culture, but do not want is that this view is the same and I like that!
