Christmas is a time for love and fun

Christmas is a time for love and fun, and it's time to give everyone HUGS!

The pictures are taken by me and the boys are my sons, Sam (12) and Brandon (2).
Sam and Hannah (10) set up Christmas Tree you can see in the picture and it impressed me that they decorated the tree and let Brandon pinch in and help them as well. In 2002, my oldest daughter was 12 and she did set up the tree and let her little siblings (at that time, they were 6 and 4) help. They did a beautiful job on working together and decorating.

Christmas Joys

Evergreen boughs that fill our homes
With fragrant Christmas scents,
Hearts filled with the loving glow
That Christmas represents;

Christmas cookies, turkeys stuffed,
Festive holly berry,
Little faces bright with joy,
Loved ones being merry;

Parties, songs, beribboned gifts,
Silver bells that tinkle,
Christmas trees and ornaments,
Colorful lights that twinkle;

Relatives waiting with open arms
To smile and hug and kiss us;
These are some of the special joys
That come along with Christmas.
