MERRY CHRISTMAS -- 2019

Us at Biltmore 12/18/19
Just stopping by to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to YOU and your loved ones!!!   One of the highlights of George's and my year is to visit the Biltmore Estate at Christmastime for their annual   "Christmas at Biltmore" celebration.   In addition to being with my family,   'this event' MAKES our Christmas...

Today is Dec. 23 ---and we only have a couple of days until it is Christmas DAY...   SO---today,  I'll share with you some quotes about Christmas which  I read and love.  Hope you enjoy them.

*************
"Peace on Earth will come to stay,  when we live Christmas every day."  -Helen Steiner

"Christmas isn't a season.  It's a feeling." --Edna Ferber

"Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred,  and we are better throughout the year for having,  in spirit,  become a child again at Christmastime."  ---Laura Ingalls Wilder

"I wish we could put up some of the Christmas Spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month." ---Harlan Miller

"There's nothing cozier than a Christmas tree all lit up."  --Jenny Han

"May you never be too grown up to search the skies on Christmas Eve." --Unknown

Mom and Sons---12/22/19   Such JOY for this Mama!!!!!



Being with the "Love of my Life" IS my LIFE!!!!!  Biltmore (Antler Hill Village) --12/18/19

I'll close with this:  The real meaning of CHRISTMAS is that it is the day for all Christians to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.   Sometimes,  it is easy to lose this important meaning....

Hope all of you have a marvelous CHRISTMAS.... Much Love to you,  and God's Blessings for a fabulous 2020.

Hugs,
