Christmas Eve


Can you believe it? Here we are. It’s Christmas Eve! Here in New Hampshire, our ground is nearly bare of snow and they really are not expecting any significant snow by Christmas. In fact, Christmas Day is forecast to be cold and sunny. Which is fine by me, as last year we drove through a big snowstorm to get to my daughter’s home to celebrate the big day.

I’ve always loved Christmas. The people, the fun, the food, and then something totally magical happened in my life.

I became an Oma!

Suddenly, the magic I knew when my children were little, is back and in many ways even better than before. My appreciation for all that I have in my life is so much greater than when I was young. Each person, each love, brings a smile to my face and makes me anticipate sharing Christmas Day with them.

Today I will visit the Post Office for the last cards and packages before Christmas Day.


I will pack the car, and decide what I am wearing Christmas Day and lay it out. Our day begins early, as we breakfast and prepare for one very special day, spent with those that I love.

Have a blessed Christmas Eve!

  1. I love the stylised Christmas tree picture. Best Christmas wishes from downunder, where while it was 34 here today, Christmas Day will be a more civilised 26. Enjoy your time with family and the grands. They grow up so quickly.

  2. Adorable!! Those little ones are just adorable! Merry Christmas to you and your family! Safe travels!!
