I woke up fairly early this morning and got a little bit of housework done. Right now, it's Sherry take a shower time. So here I sit at the computer, holding my newest miracle, content. We talked a little. I told her that I need to start looking for just the right ornament to get her for Christmas. I did that for my girls: every year I would get them each one that reminded me of what they were doing or where they were at in their lives. When they went out on their own, they took the ornaments with them.

I thought that when my girls moved out, that my Christmas tree would be a "grown up" tree. It would have lovely coordinated ornaments and decorations. Nope! I can't part with the ones that the girls have made or given me over the years. Yes, I've added some lovely ones and bows here and there, but I still enjoy sitting at night with only the Christmas tree lights on. I look at all the memories and cherish that warm, fuzzy feeling.

    emoticon Enjoying your new miracle and thinking about how you will celebrate every Christmas you will spend with her and the memories of Christmas past is wonderful! Christmas time is my favorite part of year, wonderful memories of family celebrations in the past and the current joy of the Holiday season.

    I still put up the favorite ornaments that the kids have left behind. DS2 took most of his but he did leave a couple of very special ones. Ah, nostalgia!

    Aw, your blog made me smile. Thank you for that and for sharing that adorable picture. It made me remember when I would stop to just enjoy those kind of moments with my babies who are now 6 and 8. Also a good reminder to keep doing it, too. :)

    emoticon I love that cute picture. We do the same thing with the ornaments. Sometimes we choose ornaments, but lately our girls love to find their own annual Christmas ornament. You are such a wonderful Grandma.

    Looks like you have a beautiful little one there. Makes me think of my grandniece when she was that size. She's 2 years old now. She's in Minnesota with her mommy and daddy (her mommy is my youngest niece) and my oldest brother (dad to youngest niece) and his family and my dad and I live in Illinois and we don't get to see them that much. Last time we saw them was in May when my youngest niece graduated. We will see them in 6 days because in 9 days youngest niece will be getting married to the grandniece's dad.
