May The Spirit of Christmas.........

bring you peace,
the gladness of Christmas give you hope,
the warmth of Christmas grant you love.



May you always find a smile tucked beneath the tree and a friendly shoulder to lean on,

May childlike innocence & the wonders all around rest in your heart, not just on December 25th, but each day of the year,

May light & peace guide your days,

May the wonders of Christmas never fade, nor its magic cease to amaze,

"It matters not how tall your Christmas tree is ~ to every child it will seem to be 30 feet high,"


May a warm embrace take you by surprise,

May you always make room in your heart for old friends & new,


May you always remember that the best gift around any Christmas tree
is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
~ Burton Hills

Wishing you all a merry, joyous and blessed Christmas Season, from our little slice of the blogosphere to yours. See you all in 2011!!!! :)
As long as we know in our hearts what Christmas ought to be,
Christmas is.

XOXO

Those pictures are so sweet! I think my favorite one is of Lauren holding Tylers little face in her hands while she plants that kiss.
I don't think you can top that!
Such sweet love...
