I was awakened by the beautiful carol, "Silent Night."  Mama and Grandma were in the kitchen finishing the Christmas dinner.  The house smelled of roasted turkey and apple pies.  It was wonderful.  I was happy.  I had much to be happy about it is Christmas Day at Grandma's house.

"Carrie, dear, it's time to get up,"  Mama called as she opened my door.

"Merry Christmas Mama,"  I said.  I rolled out of bed.

Mama came over to give me a hug.  

"Merry Christmas Carrie,"  she said.  "You better shower and get dressed.  Your Granny has prepared a wonderful breakfast for the family."

I hurried and got dressed.  I went downstairs to the dining room.  Everyone was there.

"Merry Christmas everyone," I said while setting in my chair. 

Grandma had a huge breakfast ready.  She had made homemade biscuits, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, jelly, milk.

Papa said grace.  We were ready to eat and eat we did.  As usual, I ate too much.

Grandma and Mama cleaned the kitchen.  I helped.  It was fun.  Grandma and Mama caught up on news about the rest of the family. I listened.
After clean up, we went into the living room with everyone.  We talked and played games for hours.

It was finally dinner.  Mama and Grandma went into the dining room and set the table. I went with them.  The men followed.  It was a joyous event for the whole family.

Christmas Eve at Grandma's House

Christmas Eve is always special at Grandma's house.  We sit around the tree and talk about everything.  We always had Grandma's famous spice cookies and milk.  This is a joyous time for everyone.  

At 12:00 midnight, we opened presents.  In our family gift giving is a hugh part in showing love to one another.  Mama and Daddy pass out the gifts.  We are excited.  One Christmas I will always remember when I received this beautiful jewelry box.  It is a treasure to me.

As I sit and count my blessings, I realize there is nothing more precious than family.  Family where you can share love and happiness together.  Family who will be there in bad times, as well as good times.  There is nothing like family.
