Christmas pageants and the first grade tree...

This is on the list of things that make my cry. The first grade tree. Along with the Smucker's commercial where the boys deliver jam and the coffee ad where the brother comes home from Africa for the holidays and his sister puts a bow on him and says he is her present. Family stories about Christmas past do it and
It's a Wonderful Life.
I think I shed a few tears every day in December. Have you ever read The Little Match Girl?
I took my two year old grand flower to see Santa at the mall. She was so excited when she heard his jingle. She walked up to him and said, "Santa, did you come all the way from the North Pole to see me?" Tears!
The Pageant at my daughter's four kids school about killed me. A solo and the bell choir.  La-La's dream came true...she has always wanted long hair. Extensions for the school program. She kept moving  her head to make her beaded hair swing. Big tear. Our Texas family will be here soon. When those grands see our mountains of snow their reaction makes me tear up...


  1. I always tear up at the Little Match Girl - and at those old black & white Christmas movies. Kids singing will do it to me every time. Music in church. Lots of things make me weep - mostly with joy and happiness. I always cry in December!

  2. Oh me to. But I love it. I think it is part of the season. Am experiencing all the childhood magic once more with my grands...Happy Christmas to you and yours!!!
