I am so looking forward to Christmas. All of my children will be home, my wife and I have finished our shopping for them and I'm anxious to see the look on their faces when the realize that their mother and I still know how to shop for them. I am cooking up a big dinner with all of their favorites. Were going to eat good and then hit the malls which they love to do on Christmas. Tomorrows going to be huge around my house and I am really looking forward to it. What are you doing?

My youngest daughter is spending the night. We just took two excellent home made apple pies from the oven :)) The roast and stuffing are ready to go. And we'll be having peas, mashed potatoes, salad, and biscuits. We'll open the presents tomorrow open. They are beneath the tree tempting everyone. Merry Christmas :)) Karen

Hey clarkbody, Well this year, I stayed into my apartment and slept for half of the whole day. Then I got myself tofether and visited my mom's place for a little gettogether with the rest of the family. I gave my parents CDs from their favorite artists. They fell in love with it. The smiles on their faces was priceless. Ahhh Good times...

This is certainly the time of year that everyone makes plans to spend time with special friends and close family members. I hope you and your family are having a very pleasant holiday season and best wishes for the coming year.

I am home alone. We're having a bad snowstorm, so everyone is stranded. It's really no fun being totally alone on Christmas, staring at unopened presents instead of watching the excitement of the kids as they open them. Postponing it isn't the same, but it will have to do. I'd rather see everyone safe than risk driving in this mess!

Totally agree. However, I would rather have a potponed christmas than a cancelled one. I really hope things work out for you, but in the words of some unknown to me author, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. I hope you made the best of a bad situation. My heart gose out to you.

It sounds like you are in the military. If that's the case, I would like to thank you for your service. It's because of people like you that we enjoy the luxuries of freedom and security. I hope that you have some creative ways of enjoying daily living where ever you are. Best wishes.

I have 3 daughters, 22, 18 and 15 and whenever they are all at home at the same time....I think you can call it a party. LOL! When they were growing up, we did everything together. We were the parents to call for outtings, movie, skating, parties whatever. We were labeled as "cool parents" with their friends. Want to hear something interesting....they still ask us to go even though they all drive. It's really cool.

It's probably the best time to spend with family.

I think so. It has always been a time of giving and sharing love with family and those who may be less fortunate. My mom used to cook and by gifts for people around the old neighbor in Chicago they she knew were in need.

I will be going across the street to my moms. I will spend the day with her and my sister. I will not be with my daughter this year. She will be spending it with her brother. I will be watching the Christmas shows that come on tv.

Those christmas shows are a tradition for me. I start watching them when they start coming on and I don't stop until they do. I no longer have my mom here to spend christmas with, but I still have her with me in my heart. Enjoy your time with your mom when ever you can and cherish every day.

As usual in the morning we do what we have been doing all these years . This year is special as we have our close relatives from abroad coming home in the afternoon, so we will be having a grand dinner and then we are all planning to go out for a movie.

Dinner and a movie is always a pleasant outting for me and my family. It's one of the things that we look forward to getting togeter and do. Whether going out or just sitting around planning boards games at home, just being togehter is the greatest joy of all.

Every year seems to be slightly more different from the last. I no longer have a big family holiday. George and I spend the day togeather and I will probably do the laundry tomarrow which I didn't get done today. If George had been home all day then things might have been different, but that didn't work out that way. So I'll get it done. We'll have a ribbi dinner though seeing how it's christmas and we always try to have something special.

I understand. Christmas has certainly changed from the huge family "get-togethers" growing up in a family of 11 other siblings, but I enjoy my small family of 5. My wife and children (who are all grown up and will soon have children of thier own) fill my life with all of the joy and comfort I need and more than I deserve. I am blessed.
