Christmas Can't Be Far Away



Remember how it used to be...

Christmas would never get here,
it seemed like it was never coming!
I counted down the days...
wrote several letters to Santa Claus
every day cross off another day on the calendar




oh how time stood still
when you were waiting for Santa Claus....

When is it going to be Christmas??!!




Finally, after forever and a day 
it was here!
My brothers and sisters would 
help me watch out the window 
to see Santa and his reindeer.
They would always see him
and tell me too late!!
By some miracle 
he would sneak into our house
and place all those packages around 
our Christmas tree....




Being good always paid off!
Although, patience was something
 I needed to work on!



Now-a-days....

the time before Christmas
goes by WAY too fast!
I'm still sending out Christmas cards, 
I didn't get any baking done,
and we'll be shopping yet on
Christmas Eve!

My goodness, how time can fly by NOW!!

I hope your
Christmas TO-DO list is on track for you!
Maybe someone can come over
and help me with mine???

You're right, as kids it came way to fast, as adults, it gets here before we know it! I think I'm all ready. I got up early this morning and finished up my cards and I'm hoping it's smooth sailing...paws crossed.

PS: By the way, patience is something that will be a life long challenge for me! :-))
