And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke  2 : 8-14

Christmas Greetings!

Hello Dear Friends!  Merry Christmas!!
I am so happy to be here again! It's been ages and I have missed everyone so!

I have been busily baking, knitting, making Christmas presents and decorating my house for Christmastime!
I would love to know what you've been about since last I was here. Please, do tell!

I would not wish to detain you long from your Christmas festivities... But I thought I'd share a little of my Christmas with you!

 [I sprinkled Formica snow on absolutely everything!]

[Pewter angels from my Brother-in-Law's Grandma]

[I made a star for my tree that looks just like the one my Mama always puts on the big tree. It is just a cardboard star covered in tin foil with a hole for a light to poke through. It is one of our many Christmas traditions.]

[Kitchen utensils from Marmee!]

  [See my new bunny from Mabel?]

 [This pretty gingham table runner belonged to my Grandma.]

 [my new elephant bush]

[This card from my friend Miss Fanny just about sums me up]

 [The tea kettle is always on at my house. Would you like a cup?]

 I hope you all have a most joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year!
All my love,
