In Keeping with Tradition,
We Met for Breakfast with the T Family,
at a Local Country Diner,
Then We Broke Up the Party,
and Headed Out,
for those Last Minute
Christmas Eve-y Things,
to Rejoin Later that Day,
for What Turned Out to be
a VERY Memorably,
(the Entire T Family, Plus Other Family Extensions)
took the Opportunity
to Volunteer and Serve Dinner,
at a Local Women's and Children's Home.
[I Cannot Take Credit for Organizing
the "Troops" or Any such Planning,
Only Fulfilling My Assignments]
We were Lucky,
In that Many Items were Donated
for Our Use,
Including Christmas Stockings
and a Santa Suit.
Forgive Me If I get Long on Details and Pictures.
Pictures of the Women were Not allowed,
but If So,
I would Have tried to Capture
the Events of the Night,
as We Served Dinner,
and did several activities,
Including a Hat Swap,
a telling of
'Twas the Night Before Christmas,
The MOST Endearing Visit
from Santa Claus,
and Christmas Stockings filled with Goodies.
I think at one time or another,
Everyone got a Little Teary-Eyed.
The Women, and the Volunteers.
At the End of the Night,
there were Lots of Hugs,
and a Special Feeling of Family.
I LOVED Spending My Christmas Eve,
Our Christmas Eve Night
was Spent at My Brother-In-Law's
Doing the Things that Happen Before
The Jolly Ol' Elf's Arrival
Merry Christmas to All,
And to All,
A Good Night.
