HAPPY NOVEMBER!

Can it be possible that this year has flown by so quickly?  Time to put Halloween decorations away and start decorating for Christmas.  I love this magical time of year.  I  think it would be so nice to relax and enjoy the holidays but for as long as I can remember I never seem to have a spare minute.  Then January 1, comes and it is gone.  My boys would always laugh at me when they were young because I would keep the Christmas tree up until Valentine's Day and sometimes longer.  Always seems sad to take down the tree before I was able to fully enjoy it.  I have a lot to do this holiday season and now is the time to start on it!  In my mind I remember when I was very young going to the nearby town of East Liverpool during the holidays and seeing all the magical decorations.  What a beautiful sight! Wow!!!!  Santa was amazing!  Even then I loved Christmas!  I think I believed in Santa until I was age 14.  Well, I guess I still believe in Santa come to think of it.  There is a magic in Christmas that makes everyone feel a little better and be a little kinder.  I have been working on a black bear for a sweet lady and when she is finished I hope to work on decorations, a quadruple batch of home made noodles to freeze for Thanksgiving, fruitcake and a lot of cookies for the freezer.  Little boys and BIG boys like cookies around here.  One year I made 126 dozen cookies for Christmas and two large fruitcakes.  Don't know why I counted them but must have been my OCD.  Christmas morning there wasn't a cookie in the house so I had to make cookies.  Seemed to always have a lot of extra little boys who would come to the house and they all loved cookies.  I hope you all enjoy this wonderful season and remember the true meaning of the birth of Christ and celebrate His birth.
