A Christmas Memory


Creche with bokeh edit with topaz

I was sitting with my coffee this morning and reflecting back to when the boys were small and some of the great memories of Christmas’s past.  One in particular comes to mind to when our eldest was just a wee boy perhaps 2 years old or so we used to go to the early Children’s Mass at church.   The children were encouraged to sit up in the front pews just adjacent to the manger with Jesus, Mary and Joseph in it.   During the story of how Jesus was born in the stable in Jerusalem the Priest stated that we were going to sing a hymn.  Out of this little lad came a big voice…"Are we going to sing Happy Birthday now?”   The congregation had a big laugh.   I have never forgot that.   

I have a dining room table full of gingerbread cookies needing to be iced.  I had better get at it.   Have a Very Merry Christmas to you all.    Valerie

I am joining with Lisa for The Creative Exchange.

Just how innocent that question was. I know why Jesus told us to be childlike not childish hehe. Thanks for the visit Valerie I do appreciate and your prayers. ^_^

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
