This is my second blog written to capture memories made with our grandchildren. The link to my first blog, "Meet Our Grandchildren," is listed below in the right hand column. Hope you have time to read some of it. Our journey to becoming grandparents has been full of adventure and much love.

Christmas of 2012 ~ Our Most Wonderful Christmas Ever

This year it seemed that summer was never followed by fall, let alone the Christmas season. Papa and I lost all sense of time from July 11th through December12th. Once we learned our Kristen was cancer free, time marched on.Our fingers began burning our keyboards as we ordered gifts for family and friends.

We decorated our house. Papa did lots of running from store to store, while I was busy making cookies and goodies for Jesus' birthday. Our celebration began, as always, on Christmas Eve. Shelley's and Don's friends Debbie and Andrew, who have blended into our family, joined in the festivities.

One of my Facebook friends shared a wonderful poem relating the birth of Jesus centering around  M&M's. I put together four bags of them for our four wonders and placed a copy of the poem on the front of each bag (You can see them in the above layout.). Kara read it as our grace before dinner. So apropos for our family; we LOVE M&M's.

We have always loved Christmas. Anyone who knows me is aware of how much I love to give and get presents. This year's gift will never be surpassed. Thank you, Baby Jesus; my special friend.

Oh my gosh, I almost forgot. Everyone always says our Alex has a smile from ear to ear every time they see him. Not so much in the picture in my layout above. I had many where he sported beautiful smiles, but I just had to prove a point; no one smiles all the time. Not even our Alex!!
Hugs and kisses,
