Christmas Stockings and Other Ponderings… ~ Gabby Angel


That’s what I do a lot, I ponder and I wonder. 🙂 Well, there could be worse things I could be doing! Anyway, I was thinking about the Christmas stockings we had as kids. We faithfully hung them out before Christmas Eve and really did love those stocking  stuffers.

That leads me to my next question…How many of you kind readers got an orange, tangerine or other fruit in their stocking? Just wondering…We always did. I know Autumn and I would have missed it if we didn’t, it was just a comforting tradition to us. Wondering if that made us rather unusual? Oh well, like that would be a first for us! 😉 Other assorted cute little things went in our Christmas stockings.  Nothing as elaborate or exciting as kids these days expect. I took a poll among the nieces and nephews… So, I know these things and don’t hesitate to share them. 😉

The other thing I was pondering…Does everyone unwrap gifts on Christmas Day or Christmas morning? As kids, we unwrapped on the traditional Christmas morning. Strangely enough,  Dave and I carried on that tradition. I know sometimes things change from when you are at home as kids with Dad, Mom and the family. Then you grow up and get married for some people things change as you make your own traditons.

Another thing I was pondering… Hope all you kind readers also have all your Christmas shopping done!  Some people I know really do shop up until Christmas Eve…Too stressful I say. My years (and the twinnie’s, too) of retail taught me that one…It really was scary, as bad as Black Friday seriously. Maybe worse, because by December 24th everyone not done shopping is pretty panicked and just a bit frantic.

The ponderings and wonderings…Time to wrap them up! 😉 That was a pun, hope you all have your gift wrapping or gift bagging done! Get busy if you don’t, mine is done and so is Autumn’s…Well, that’s what the twinnie claims anyway. 😉 🙂

The Magic Christmas Angel ~ by Autumn Sunshine


She arrived in time to check things out

She’s an angel and she’s flying all about,

Such a little scout

she sees this and that

and sets it all right

Up she flies in a lovely flight

then she comes in for a landing fast

Oops she’s remembering a past

crash and dash

and a small little boom

things the elves are making,

scatter around the room

Her name is Sparkle she’s quite a sight

in the darkness or light

she sends out sparks, and sprinkles stars

whether  near or far

she knows what’s she doing, one can tell

she talks to an elf, she rings a bell

Santa is laughing a lot

What a magic angel who’s sought

year after year she flies in to help

So look real close and let out a yelp

Sparkle is here, and there and everywhere …
