January QotM: Christmas 2010

Postby Mrs.Claus » Sun Jan 03, 2010 4:22 pm

I thought it's about time, we got this going again and the perfect question would be about this past Christmas 2009.

What one thought from this Christmas time stands out? Was there a certain smell or sound that sticks with you? A comment someone said? It doesn't have to be good or bad, just something that stood out to you.

TIME

I was pondering how frail time is in the life of a loved one, and how we always hope for more time next Christmas. This may be my last Christmas with my Mom and I am so very grateful! It was simpler due to financial/time constraints ut one of the best! :holly1:

Smell: My mom's and mother-in-laws tamales. It isn't a Mexican Christmas without them.
Memory: This year my son and daughter (4 and 7) argued about whether Santa had a magic key or magic dust in order to enter into homes without a fireplace. The homes in our area do not have fireplaces.

Two things stood out... Making a gingerbread house with my brother and his wife 4 days after Christmas. A blast! The second memory is the quiet time spent with my mom and aunt on Christmas Eve. Comfy and quiet. Loved it before the hustle and bustle of all the other parties.

Reading your entries reminds me how important a role our senses play in enjoying the full spectrum of Christmas. Thanks for sharing! :scene:

It was Strange. Nothing really seemed right. We left the in-laws a day early and didn't go back for New Years. Everyone just seemed so stressed and we didn't want to add to it.

We spent the next week at home, just the 4 of us and that was good. It had been a few years since we were home for New Years and it was pretty fun.

My New Year's was just Mom & I. It was precious.

For New Years it was the first year in a long time that we went out to a party. Since it was a family function the kids were invited. We danced, drank, and ate plenty of nice goodies. We also stayed the night so we wouldn't have to drive home.
The best memory of that night was when my brother-in=law tried to do The Worm/Snake (an old dance move) and he could not get off the floor (he is a bit on the heavy side) so he sort of just slid. It laughed so much!!!

Two thoughts stand out of this past Christmas,

1. Getting to watch my autistic son in a school program(never thought that would ever happen)

2. How the enitre season went by so fast, I feel like I blinked and its gone.
