CHRISTMAS CARD-FAMILY CHRISTMAS-MORTICIA

27 12 2015

GREETINGS

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  I have been either doing shows or getting ready to do shows so I wasn’t quite prepared for Christmas this year.  Presents and cards were late and some cards not at all because my printer stopped working.  Well there is next year to plan better.IMG_6203

From Cosmo and everyone on the farm 

We wish you Happy Christmas and a 

Joyous and Happy New Year

FAMILY CHRISTMAS

There were 8 of us around the large table and 6 at the teenage tale.  A full  house.

Last night was cooler than it has been so Morticia had to keep her feet warm.  Her son Eddie is next to her.

The first child on the bottom row left is my Grandfather.  The picture as taken in Chesterfield, Mass. The picture was probably taken in the late 1800’s I presume as he was born in 1885.

Chris and Lilly Pad are here for the week.  We are planning to get a few small trees cut up and some of the big tree cut up tomorrow.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope you have wonderful holidays.  And for my logger friends in England I hope the flooding stops quickly and thing are all okay.  Carole

 





CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS DAY-SAMMY-THE FRIENDLY BEASTS

25 12 2013

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

The weather is just right for Christmas Eve.  Now if there was just a little snow in the air, and that did happen.

Betty, Tea and Dylan came up this afternoon and we had a very nice visit.  Tea will be driving alone in a month.  Time goes by so quickly.  Dylan is so tall now.

My friend Francine reminded me today that tonight is the night the animals talk.    The Friendly Beast written by Robert Davis  in the 1920’s was  one the songs we used to sing as children. The music for this piece dates back to the 12th century.  I never hear it anymore and was glad that she reminded me of it.  It is a joyful song telling of all the gifts the animal brought to the Manager.  Here of course is my favorite part.

I gave him my wool for his blanket warm

CHRISTMAS DAY

This is Sammy’s eighteenth Christmas with me.  Although he is on medications for different things , his hearing and walking have changed he still is the most lovable cat.  He is enjoying a pre-breakfast nap.

THE LIVING MANAGER

The service was really nice and there was lots of singing of Carol’s.  The sheep behaved themselves very well.
