The standing rule was you may miss other annual family events but you DO NOT miss
Christmas Eve at Grandma' and Granddaddy's.
This is the way I remember it.
Grandma’s Living Room packed so tight that you wondered if we could get anymore
the porch admiring their claims to fame.
bringing out the Oooo’s and Ahhhhhhs of everyone who was present.
But do you remember the little things?
that you could have lost yourself in them.
out to ruffle our hair as we passed by to wish him a Merry Christmas.
search for a hint of “who was who’s” with one of the Aunts close by
to throw a name if needed.
Grandma’s Plate collection on the dining room wall.
Grandma’s and Granddad’s newest Great Grandchildren.
o share with our new members of the family.
From Our Part of The Family
To You and Yours
Merry Christmas Eve
