'TWAS THE NIGHT . . .



 

On this night of wonderful anticipations, of scents of sweet, of savory, of HOME, of wishings and dreams and thoughts of those we love, I wish you all the innocent, sweet hearts of little children, awaiting a Wonder.

We are few in our house tonight, with promises of quite a few more in the days to come, with little celebrations “all along,” as my Mammaw used to say.   She would have LOVED this brood we’ve managed to acquire, with seven children between us, eight GRANDS and eight GREATS.   We are truly blessed.

And so, we SOUTH Pole Clauses wish you the very best of Christmas Nights, with a bright morning dawning.

Such a magical night indeed, and one that all your brood is certain to enjoy. Delightful post topped only by the delightful picture you've included to wrap things up like a celebratory Christmas package.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

My dear Rachel,

Hope you and your family had the most splendid Christmas. I adore that picture of you all dressed up!! I had the most delightful and peaceful Christmas day yesterday. The weather was not too cold and it was dry and crisp - just the way I like it for going out for a walk before luncheon. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Christmas once again, ASD

All sounds good Rachel. Our Christmas was warm and today it is a gale, blowing raining and freezing. I haven't seen weather like this in a long time. Kind of like a hurricane, but very cold. Is that you in the last picture?

Thank you for the warm hug, Rachel. We hope your Day was full of family and friends and the true spirit of the season. And may you and yours be blessed with health, happiness, and peace through all the year to come.

Love to all.
