Sights and Sounds... myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

Christmas is such a splendid time of the year! I LOVE this time of the year. Hearing joyous laughter, voices raised up in church on high. The feeling of happiness everywhere you go.

It is astounding all that we do to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The joy of it all is endelaved on my heart. I have also spent a Christmas without family or gifts or any of the goodies, and noone can steal what is in your heart or soul for the miracle of Christmas will still come and fill the silence with the beauty and knowledge that Jesus Christ was born.

We had a wonderful time at the dinner party that just the two of us hosted last night. Everyone loved the breaded baked huge two inch pork chops we served. I was just glad they turned out cause I couldn't ever remember cooking meat of any kind that was that thick, I just wish I would have taken pictures! That might have appeared a bit tacky though, making you guest wait while you take pictures to post on your blog! lol It was great and everyone was so sweet and gracious. Our two nephews Josiah, 3; Zachary, 15 mo's; Ben, 12 mo's were so very cute! It is amazing how small children, as young as they are, immediately relate to each other in such a different manner of socialism than that of the grown adults. While all of us were seated and enjoying our meal, every now and then, the conversation would be interrupted by squeals of delight, baby talk and spurts of giggles. It was so amusing!

Cindi and Jeremy's little boy Josiah is just brilliant! Yes, I am infatuated with him he is such a smart little tyke! Once dinner was over, we had him count several simular items on the table such as, candles, and soda cans and so forth, he did very well. Then I had Josiah turn around with his back to the table so he couldn't see anymore and asked him to tell us how many of each item were on the table by recollection. He had remembered the total of each item perfectly!

Josiah, Jeremy and Dennis put together a Christmas train that has little elves that pump one of the flat cars and goes up and down. It is fun seeing the little one's face's light up while they watch it go around the track with the whistle blowing!

Terry and Jen walked in with an armload of wrapped presents to sit under the tree and she also brought homemade brownies! Sweet girl!

Renee and little Ben arrived without Kevin; Ben was dressed so cute and had just got his shot, so therefore, his disposition was good, he never once cried or anything but he just wasn't his normal feel good self where he just enamores you.

Zachary was always on the move, everywhere he went it was on wheels. He has that baby soft blonde thick wispy baby hair that is perfectly straight and just had my little finger wrapped around him the moment they came. If ever there was a baby that looked more like an angel it is Zachary!

Our folks were great, they picked some oranges from the trees in the backyard to take home, so that was nice. I made a yummy custard fresh fruit salad with some of our oranges for dinner that night that turned out delicious!

So it's just the two of us embracing the sights and sounds of an evening together with family and friends, hoping you're feeling the happiness all around you too!

Good Morning Pamela,

I was just talking with a father the other day about how his 3 year old daughter was interacting with another little girl she didn't even know! They were so cute together jabbering on and carrying on their own conversation! If only adults could be as friendly with one another as innocent children do!

I'm picturing you stopping your guests from eating their food while you take a picture..LOL...only other bloggers would understand why you are taking pictures of a pork chop!

Josiah is a smart one, isn't he? I used to work with the 3-4 years olds in Awana for ten years! Some adults don't give little ones enough credit for being so intelligent. I loved working with them and helping them learn their Bible verses. I was amazed how fast they could learn and more importantly retain it as well!

I'm being long winded again, aren't I? Just one last thing...I anxiously await for your new entries everyday and check often because you really are a bright spot of my day! Not trying to get all sappy sweet, but it is such a pleasure to be building this friendship with you! I just wanted to say thank you for bringing a smile to my face everyday!

Love, Amy

It cracks me up that the snowwoman's name is Barb. LOL

Two inch pork chops sound like heaven to me. I love pork chops. And it's not tacky to photograph dinner before you serve it. No one even questions me about that any more, I do it so often. Who knew I'd end up just automatically shooting pictures of everything I cook!

Glad the dinner party was a success.

It just makes me miss my big family even more, I remember laughing and talking and sitting around a huge table filled with food.

Now it's just us four and it gets very lonely for me at times :)

If it was wrong to photograph your dinner then I would be in a lot of trouble LOL My family doesn't even take a bite anymore before I've put the camera away, they know what's coming LOL

Hi Pamela,
I'm trying to get around to comment. Life has been hectic here as you might imagine!
Your party sounds wonderful, and nothing like the laughter of small children to make it seem so special.
((hugs)) and love

Thank you for visiting me when I was sick (or better said my blog) I feel much better, I kept working because I don't want to use any sick time, (you know I am saving it) but I had fever and my body was too achy to do anything. You are such a great friend. On the other hand I was reading your last posts and you are so excited and full of joy and health, it is contagious!!! Hopefully tomorrow I will be visiting all of my favorite blogs, Yippeee!
P.S Yours and Pea's are such treats for my soul!!!!

I'm so glad the party was a success. Little ones just add so much to a party - don't they? And they make Christmas extra special.
Your package to Kathleen was so special. You're the best Pamela.

Hmmmm and where was MY invitation to this party??? hehe It sounds like you all had a fabulous time and those pork chops sure sounded good! I had to smile when you said you didn't want to take pictures of the food while your guests were there...I went through that last night while entertaining a friend of ours...I didn't dare take out my camera to take pictures of the finger foods I served! lol The little ones sound so adorable...that's what I miss right now during the holidays, it's little children! Hugs xox
