How different would Christmas be if I wasn’t surrounded by family?
Opening packages would be such a bore,
If I wasn’t surrounded by cousins galore.
A lone gal Christmas sock affair,
Instead of hanging stockings by the chimney with double the care.
All dressed up with nowhere to go,
Instead of trying to be the star of the show.
Christmas pageants with one can be so annoying,
But with two, the show is much more enjoying.
Lonely lonely would Christmas celebrating be
Without the decades of fun with family.
From past to present with futures near,
Hold those dear, with your heart full of cheer.
Thanks! It was fun digging them up for this post.
Wow amazing. These are some extraordinary family photos you have – let’s me imagine how beautiful it must have been. And your family is huuge! Lucky you 😉
Thank you! I do love having a large family and the older we all get, the more fun it is to look back at the past as kids. Thank God for photos!
What a cute and stylish little girl you were!
I started with the love of gaudy young. Yay!
