Nice.
That's Special Post quality, Jennifer!

Your grandma sounds like she was a wonderful person. I've often worried that my...enthusiasm for Christmas might make the holiday sad for my children after I'm gone. I hope it inspires them to think of me and smile & laugh. I bet your grandma felt the same way.

The Great Pumpkin collects the candy and replaces it with a gift. The kids love it and mom and dad do too since we have put on a pound or two in the past week thanks to the large amount of candy in the house. Have a great evening everybody.
That's a great tradition!

Hello All!

It's really starting to feel like the start of the holiday season now! My grocery store was playing holiday music--not full time yet, just a song here and there, but it was Christmas music! And the posters for America's Children's Holiday Parade have gone up all over town. (1st of December, and for those who don't live near Oakland, CA, it's broadcast on PBS stations.) I've been listening to Old Time Radio Christmas shows on my I-pod the last couple days, alternating with my Thanksgiving playlist. I'm starting to get very excited for Christmas!

Hope all are doing well--I think about y'all a lot, just because you're so darn nice! Well, my work break is over, so I'll have to wrap up--have a great day!

I love Christmas because of Christmas carols...

I love Christmas because of how I wake every Christmas Eve morning and still get the same feeling I had when I was 12. That's a tribute to my mother. She instilled in us the value of family, being together, and how it should be special. She recognized, with her mother's intuition, a long time ago that a day would come when we wouldn't all be so close to each other and that the distance would grow in more ways than miles. She made that time special because she wanted us to look back on those days as some of the most precious days of our life and long to be together again the next Christmas. I can still remember sitting in my Mother's lap on Christmas morning and feeling like the most special person in the world. I still get the same feeling each and every Christmas morning. I can still see my brother sitting there playing across from me or feel the wind in my hair as we rode our 3 wheeler together on Christmas morning. I can smell the fudge and cookies…and I can still vividly see the night that Santa came to see us because I had the brother who didn't believe. But to me….at this age….the fact that I can go to a place in my mind and see my Grandfather and Grandmother who passed years ago….when we were all together as a whole family…I am thankful for a mother who created that environment.

I love Christmas because every Christmas tree is perfect.

I love Christmas because of Christmas cards….

I love Christmas because my father had a heart attack. I can still remember coming home from a baseball game and sitting there reveling in a win with my girlfriend (soon to be wife) and getting that knock on the door. I can still remember every inch of the road on that drive. I can still remember the fear that overtook me when they told us they had to revive him three times and that it didn't look good….that the next 24 hours would be critical….that he only had a 10% chance to make it. When he made it, I tucked all that away….until Christmas morning that year. Sitting there, seeing my father who we almost lost…learning right then that life is a series of moments and that you had better learn to cherish each one as it comes along. To me, that is what Christmas is….it just adds to the series of special moments…

I love Christmas because I love giving to others. There is nothing like giving a gift or food to someone and knowing they are truly appreciative of you.

I love Christmas because I work with kids. Being around kids at Christmas….it's almost magical….even the older ones.

I love Christmas because of my wife. I'm a tough ol' coot. Not much rattles me….but the fact that I love someone so much that it can move me to tears….loving someone so deeply that you would literally give up your life for theirs….I never knew that kind of love until I knew her. Knowing that I have a Savior who felt the same for me…that's what my wife taught me about Christmas.

I love Christmas because of the Christmas lights….

I love Christmas because we put on a Christmas play for our elementary school. I love how strong the innocence is in that room. I love the strength of their blind faith. I love how the kids go nuts when an 18 year old dressed as Santa walks in….the smiles….the pure joy that every person in the room feels…

I love Christmas because I found and fell in love with all of you.

Yep, I love Christmas for all the right reasons….


….and Christmas is here….



5 more days until the season….

May your season be blessed….
Wow - I'm more of a reader than a writer but i just had to comment on Coach's special post. I read posts on our forum every day and feel like one of the gang even though I don't say much - but I had to reply to Coach's special post today. I could relate to so much of what he says - everything that's special about Christmas. It's true that the holiday season is like life on steroids - accelerated, hightened living. These are the times that we remember most throughout our lives - I'm supposed to be a tough old guy as well but when Coach mentioned how easy it is to remember our loved ones when we think about Christmases past - it's so true - and made my eyes well up as I remembered my grandparents who have all now been gone for a number of years. Each season we create the memories that will last forever - for us and our children - all the more reason to make each season special. Thanks Coach for starting us off right!

Hope everyone is having a great week! Tomorrow starts my weekend off, so I will be enjoying it and boy do I deserve it. It's been a busy week both at work and just in general. I am really looking forward to it.

Talk to all of you tomorrow. God Bless and hope you all had a wonderful Friday!

One thing you could do is to give a gift to a charity in your grandma's name.

Amazing !!! ( Check the date! )

A Crown Conspiracy ?! "Count" me a participant! I'm going to have to order this one on or shortly after "the day" my own self!




More here.

Man! I wish I had Faith's suit jacket!...and maybe a little of the hair oil he's sporting...oh, and that narrow tie!...has he been using teeth whitener?!...that too!...a smidgen of his musical talent, perhaps!...and/or his music royalty $$...wait!...maybe just the $$ then...

Do you think that little girl in the top album cover is gonna wake up and be traumatized after seeing Santa's drooped beard? What if she was the one who wrote "I Saw Mama Kissing Santa Claus"? Had she awaken in that picture, we would have never had/heard that song! Thank God for sleeping innocence!...and soundly!..Why is Santa's hair dark and slicked back? Is Faith supposed to be Santa?...Does Santa have faith?...What the heck is that in the other album picture?!...an octopus?...amoebas floating in a Petri dish?...(whatever a Petri dish is)...a kindergartner's refrigerator art?...chestnuts roasting on an open fire?...All it needs is Valerie adding glitter and hocking it on QVC!...Clink Clink, Another Drink!...Where's Binger?!...Where's Made?!...why is there no "u" after the Q?...What in blazes was in that eggnog?
