Merry Christmas from The Johnson Family
This will be my last post for a week or two. So I wanted to take this opportunity to wish my friends and family a VERY merry Christmas, marked with joy and love and peace. Remember to take time to enjoy yourself and not get caught up in the presents and the stress and the to-do list. See Christmas through the eyes of your children, grandchildren or whoever the little ones are in your life.
Santa Clause with a cotton ball beard.
Trees made from popsicle sticks.
Reindeer with feet and hand prints.
Don't forget the salt dough ornaments.
Make a cake for Jesus.
A final tradition I will share with you. Jeff and I have a time together on Christmas Eve. We put the children to bed early. We pop a bottle of sparkling cider. We open a gift from each other. (These have turned into personal gifts that can't be opened in front of the children, if you know what I mean. Wink, wink.) Then we turn on the video camera and...HEY! Get your mind out of the gutter. Sheesh. This is a G-rated blog. NO! We record our guesses on what the next year will bring for each of our children, then we do five years out and ten. But hey, while it's out....
