At this time of year it reminds me so much of when I was younger and how much joy and warmth of Christmas with my family and my grandparents that are no longer with me. As a child growing up going to my Grandparents farm at Christmas the best time of year for me. I cannot describe how it felt to be in the car going there as you would have to had been there. We would go there Christmas Eve and we always worried that it would storm and we would have to turn around and go the next morning....but for some odd reason it never snowed until we got there and all snug and warm in their house. I remember getting there in the dark and Grandma would have all the Christmas lights on and getting out of the car the world was quiet and still, you could smell the fire smoke coming from the chimney. It was a wonderful smell and you knew the house would be warm and cozy and you knew that grandma would have treats waiting on the table in the kitchen. Nanimo bars, shortbread cookies, chocolate yule logs with marshmallows in them and cherries dusted in coconut, butter tarts, and yes folks dark Christmas cake and we loved it and I still do. Candies and peanuts and of course the mixed nuts of walnuts, hazel nuts and brazil nuts. It was just a wonderful thing to walk into the porch and smell all the baking she did the day before, walking in and just hugging them and seeing their happy faces when we came in. Dad would go back out later after a night lunch as my Grandma would call it and get all the Christmas presents out of the car. Grandma would usually leave the Christmas tree that Grandpa cut down that day undecorated till we all got there.

Grandma would of course put on all the lights and we would decorate it, grandpa would have the hockey game on and we would all watch it. My mom on one side of the fire place in her chair and grandma would be in her corner on the other side of the fireplace either knitting or talking to mom. Grandpa would be in his favorite chair and dad would be laying on the floor, and us kids would either play in the den with our toys or on the couch watching the game too. In those days as a kid the still played hockey Christmas Eve.

After while we looked out the window and see if it was snowing and every year on Christmas eve it snowed about a hour after we arrived....my Grandma would look outside and see it and she would have a tear in her eyes. I always wondered why she had a tear in her eye and when I got older I asked her why. She told me it was a secret and when I had my own kids one day my mom would tell me why just as she told my mom and her mom told her.

Well before she could meet Elizabeth she passed away and my mom one year at Christmas when it was Elizabeth's first Christmas told me why she always cried a single tear when the snow came on Christmas Eve.

One Christmas eve a few months after I was born, we where to travel to my grandparents for my first Christmas ever and my parents had to turn back to home as it started to storm and we just about did not make it back home. My grandmother missed my first Christmas and and prayed to god every year afterward not to let it snow till we all got there safe and sound. So every year after her prayer it never snowed till after we got there...my grandmother always cried as her prayers where always answered at Christmas time.

I think that is why Christmas means so much to me now more than ever because I miss my grandparents so much and miss those days I had with them and did not get to share my own daughter with her my grandmother. My grandfather was lucky he was around for three years of her life and three wonderful Christmases. He always managed to travel to our house in the city where I was living and it still did not snow till he got there safe and sound Christmas Eve.

So that is why I will take Christmas over Halloween any day. I had so many happy memories from my childhood about Christmas and I will pass on to my own daughter.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, MERRY YULE AND MANY MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL.

I am very very excited today...for almost 30 years now I had my children's story sitting in my file box and I finally got it in print today!!!!!! I am so happy I made this happen today and I will be ordering the printed books at the end of the month for my family and of course myself. I may not be published by a big publishing house but at least it is completed finally and I can be happy in knowing I finally did something about the story. It is my book, containing my own drawings....Finally Mr.Mops is now a book a book that I can be proud of for my daughter. Now that I know I can do this I can make the other stories of Mr.Mops and his little friends and my daughter will have them for the rest of her life and be proud of her Momma.

We had a wonderful morning today as Elizabeth got to see Santa and Mrs.Claus in person!!!! We had a wonderful time and no we did not have to pay to get pictures like you do at the Malls or did. It was a local business in a near by town that did a wonderful job staging the area and we where allowed to take our own pictures. I am not sharing the picture but I did share some with friends on here in private.
