well well well
Three cheers for Christmas Eve Day this year! Last night Wendy and I stayed awake until, nearly, 3 am finishing her birthday (august 9th) puzzle! It was so thrilling to finally finish the 2,000-piece masterpiece!
Lydia and I also made popcorn balls! Stay tuned for recipe in a later post!
And what’s more is this morning we began the day with Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving cartoon PLUS Charlie Brown’s Christmas! Yipee!! Somehow hearing Linus recite the gospel, chapter 2, of Luke, verses 8 through 14 is so peaceful. Thank you, Linus and Peanuts…”And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.'”
“…And that’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”
thank you for your help Wendy! Also today, I managed to get to JCPenney! Macy’s! Kroger and even cook a Christmas Eve Evening feast with my Auntie Sharon, attend the Christmas Eve service and watch the nutcracker in front of the fire – – oh! – and I stuffed Auntie Sharon’s stocking…stay tuned for that – it shall have a post all its own! … Merry Christmas Eve y’all!
