Christmas Memories… ~ by Gabby Angel


We all have them, don’t we? Hopefully more good than bad of those Christmas memories. I have shared more than a few in the last couple weeks. The sharing, that is so easy for me…Maybe I over share sometimes? No, couldn’t happen…Wouldn’t somebody have told me by now?!

Autumn and I were talking about the family and Christmas memories. We wondered if any of you kind readers might by chance want to share a small one of your own? It’s a thought, that’s all I am just  throwing  it out there…It will be entirely up to you.

One of my favorite memories I would love to share involves our family and one special tradition. Autumn has one, too…A very short one, of course. Maybe I should have had her write in a form of a poem. 😉 Let’s first share the twinnie’s Christmas memory…This really is a good one, too. Listening to our Dad  tell Christmas stories and most especially “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. We would have the Christmas tree lights on and everybody got comfy. He and Mom would set together on the couch, and Dad would start reading.

At the beginning Autumn and I would set on either side of them. As more sisters came along, we of course spread out! Mom would sometimes pitch in with a line or so sometimes, it was such fun. It’s one of her most favorites and she asked me to tell this one.

Mine is special and kind of short actually…What a surprise I know! Once we got old enough, one of the Christmas memories I really do treasure is a simple one. Autumn and I once we were 13 or 14 years old got to stay up later on Christmas Eve. We would play a board game with Dad and Mom, monoply or scrabble, some kind of board game. We always got to choose and oh my goodness…It made us feel so grown up!

We all ate a few Christmas cookies and had hot cocoa. After the game was over, we would help Dad and Mom by leaving cookie crumbs on a plate for the younger sisters to find! It was nice seeing them the next morning with their eyes all big, saying “Look Santa left crumbs”! It was a heartwarming thing to see those little sisters be so thrilled. Well, there you have it…Autumn’s Christmas memory and one of my favorites, too.

Now, it’s up to all of you…Care to share one of yours? The twinnies would love to hear! 🙂 🙂

The Magic Christmas House ~ by Autumn Sunshine


It’s the house where Christmas grows

come look inside and you will know

it really shows

Shhhh … it’s magic after all

All sorts of beautiful things

happiness it brings

to those who come to see

the ones who do believe

So look around and see who is here

Oh my, who is that reindeer?

It’s Rudolph, and he smiles at us

making us wonder, but we have trust

He must be in training for his Christmas flight

His nose is glowing and ready for the darkest of nights

What a magical house so shiny and light

I see all the ones who make Christmas so bright

Let’s go for now and quietly leave

We’ll see the magic on Christmas Eve …
