Christmas Full

Church, dinner, a warning from Dad:
Not too early,
sleep late!
Footsteps, giggles, very loud whispers ...
three boys in our room.
Early, Christmas morning.
Boxes, ribbons, papers, bags,
tags, tabs, bows, cards.
Building, sorting, playing, listening.
Happy boys,
busy boys.
Family, friends, lots of food.
Rainy outside,
sunny within.
Quiet evening talking, sharing,
grateful, thankful.
Christmas full.
*from the files of very bad poetry by Bia

Che bella poesia! Da' proprio l'idea del Natale in famiglia.
So che Babbo Natale non ha portato T-Shirt e calze ai tuoi ragazzi, ma bellissimi regali.
Indovina chi me l'ha detto!!(eh! eh!)

Happy New Year Maria.
May 2013 be filled wiht lots of joys and only a few little manageable sadnesses that highlight all the good bits.

LOVE the ornament! My oldest is a drummer and I always try to purchase a special ornament for them each year. This would have made an excellent choice for him, had I seen it in a store, that is! Actually, this year he received a snowman driving a car, since he got his license this year.
