On Thursday, we put up our Christmas tree. Jerry would open an ornament, give it to one of the babies, and they would walk it over to me to be put on the tree. We opened several "Our 1st Christmas Together" ornaments which we got the year we were married and the hung lots of "Babies 1st Christmas" ornaments and my heart nearly over flowed with emotion. The babies are older and are now sooo excited about Christmas and the upcoming visit from Santa Claus. I try to count my blessings each and every day and hope to keep the JOY OF CHRISTMAS in my heart this holiday season. I also try to remind the kids at every opportunity that Christmas is about Christ and His birth and we should never forget that. I hope all of you who read this, have a wonderful, joyous and blessed Christmas season.
