Merry Christmas Eve!!

The pitter patter of feet
Auntie, please
Unckie can I 
The unexpected snuggles and hugs
The sounds of kids in the morning
Wrapping of presents
One last present that no one could find
Walmart and the craziness there
Hanging out in comfy clothes
The excitement for Christmas morning
It's been full of smile..
Some tears today..
the magic is here....and I am grateful for these people, who sometimes drive me nuts, who have become family. 
My mother in law choked up last night as we were talking about the last few months and for the first time ever, I felt like she considered me one of her kids.
that my dear friends is an amazing Christmas present...and one that is so unexpected that just thinking about it makes me tear up.
Wishes of magic, love and laughter today and always.
Love and hugs from all of us.


  1. I am so happy you had that experience with your mother to make this Christmas special. This year we will have a quiet Christmas morning as there are no little children to be getting excited with presents. My grandsons will but we will be other places. I will be with them at a family gathering in January. I just posted a picture of our little tree. Take care and have a very Merry Christmas.

  2. It's about time she felt that way. I'm so glad. You're an amazing and very special person. Enjoy your holiday and SMILE!!! Merry Christmas.

  3. Lovely words to make us feel all warm and happy inside today, Col. Have a very Happy Christmas with all your family - you deserve it my friend.

  4. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Hope you make some great memories.

    Mind Of Mine.

  5. I LOVE my Inlaws so much - My Mom in law is so cool she even sent an email to our dogs [no I am not kidding. :)] I am glad your MIL realizes the gift in you.

    Again, Merry Christmas! Enjoy. :)
