Countdown Till Christmas


We were baby sitting our two oldest grandson and Matt our 5 year old reminded me that it was time we counted the days until Christmas. We went to his Christmas program last night. They told the story of Jesus being born. The ages of the kids were 3 to 5 year olds. We might have had some younger ones, but they were priceless in their costumes. He was one of the wise men. It was very enjoyable and fun to watch because you don't know what they are going to say or do. I am hoping the weatherman is wrong tonight. He is saying we were going to have freezing rain and snow after midnight. I don't mind snow, but the ice I definitely don't like. We are suppose to mark a day off the calendar each day with the 24Th being circle in red. Red because that is for Christmas. He helped decorate the Christmas tree and the ornaments are on one side until mommy told him that he had to put some on the other side. Christmas is fun when you see it through the eyes of a child. They always make the holidays better regardless of the weather.
Next week I work two days and the following week I work three days. I have so much to do and not enough hours, bosses at times don't take into consideration that he closed the business for those days that we normally work. There is always a lot to do at the end of the year with the w2's and all the reports due, but it will get done. I always manage.
I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
