Merry Christmas 55.......



Snooping for presents,
Picking out a tree.
No School for 2 weeks..
It was great being free!!
Sitting on Santa's lap
Wrapping presents with Mom,
Sloppy kisses from 'Old Aunt's"
Card's with money were the BOMB!!
But those are distant images
How the years have travelled fast
Oh what fantastic memories
Christmas' of the past!!!
.
.
Happy Holiday's Everyone... Peace!!

I'm missing the Christmas spirit, or something. I've had multiple opportunities this week to incorporate it into the memes I participate in, but I just don't think of it 'til I've already posted and then I go to view others... What is wrong with me?!

G-man, I love your 55! It reminds me of the spirit I had when I was a kid... especially the "two weeks off!" part. *wistful* Did I suddenly grow up when I wasn't looking?

Meanwhile, I'm up here.

G-Man said...

Mona...?
I don't know if they are different or not..

Smarmoofus,
Nothing at all is wrong with you my dear. Sometimes the 'Spirit' takes a while to envelope you..
It just means you've been busy..
I'm coming right over..
Thanks for stopping by and for participating..G

Those memories of Christmases past can make you feel so warm and fuzzy. It's different now, though it still has its moments. Excellent 55, Mr. G.:)

That should be a classic, G. Run it every year, we'll enjoy it each time.
I think the reunions are what really make the holiday special, being with the people we really love.
I'm throwing my hat into the ring of those who miss TC. He's like the prodigal son, welcome upon his return.

Galen,

I love it.

It's the next best thing to 'Twas the Night Before Xmas.

Believe it or not, I played the Virgin Mary in my senior year Xmas pageant. Back then I fit the part.

My junior year I was some other chick that plays a role in the Jesus story somehow, but I couldn't even begin to remember who. I didn't know who she was then either.

Now that I think about it, I can't believe we put on such an inherently specific Christian version of a Xmas play at a public school and it wasn't THAT long ago.

Anyhow, I am thinking that I REALLY need to get back into the 55 thing. I've missed it terribly.

Now that school is on break and I've discovered wireless at DD and my comp connects SOMETIMES at home, it should be easier to get back into the swing of it.


Mona,

Your new pic is SMOKING HOT.

Love it.
