Christmas Together We're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.

*the feeling that christmas is coming

*taking my young cousins to the cinema on halloween to watch a creepy
film and eat lot's of popcorn

* a cold, crisp winter morning

* a night in with a takeaway and a good film

* my MIL's roast dinners

* my mum's homecooked dinners

What a great idea for a thread!! Let's see......

Clean fresh sheets dried on the line

Discovering a new author with a complete series of books I have yet to read

Watermelon

A bubble bath and a glass of wine after a really grim day

Getting Christmas cards

Having my 17 year old son still want to (occasionally!) stay in and watch a dvd with me!!

Watching my dogs run along the beach

Going to empty the dishwasher to find someone has beaten me to it

Vampire movies

Cinnamon toast and hot chocolate

That's what comes to mind just now, but I'll keep popping back with whatever made me smile next...!!

I love this idea. Here are some things that come to mind right now:

1. My husband's omlettes. YUM!

2. Watching the birds at my bird feeder.

3. Getting the mail and finding NO BILLS in it.

4. Playing ball with my dog, Buddy.

5. Chocolate pudding pie.

There's more but I'm going to have to think on it.

A few of my little things ...

when the Robins return in the spring

when the bumble bee landed on my shoulder in early November and I wasn't startled I just whispered, "you better take cover, winter is coming"

the giggle of children at play

watching my grandchildren eat cherry tomatoes and healthy foods with the same excitement that I used to display for Chocolate Turtles and sponge toffee

the smell of pine needles (or Scotch Tape)

when my husband surprises me and has the Christmas lights turned on when I get home from work

when my cat calls me "mermama" it sure sounds like "mama" to me

staying awake on Christmas Eve listening for the sound of sleigh bells

hearing the news that someone I know is expecting a baby

the fragrance of lilac trees, peonies, azaleas, begonias, etc.

when I see a parent stop and explain the "why of things" to their curious toddlers or preschoolers

when the phone rings or I get an email from someone I was just thinking about

the sound of all the backyard birds in the morning (not the ravens)

the creek gurgling

thunder

leaves rustling making them sound like waves on the ocean

when I have cool Christmas dreams about people I've never met

when my burger or sub is built in the exact order I want

the sound of horse hooves clip-clopping along and their neigh of joy

touching Echo the Dolphin and doing tricks with him at MarineLand

I better stop for now, you can only type so much and then the message pops up that you've typed too much. Yikes! Only happened once to me, if you can believe it.
