THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT~

Merry Christmas from our house to yours... 'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free;
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be;
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
~Simple Gifts~Shaker song (c.1875)

Merry Christmas to you as well.
That song is my all-time favorite song. The musical arrangement takes my breath away.

Beautiful thoughts within that Shaker song, I like it very much. A heartfelt Merry Christmas to all at Dog Trot Farm from our little family of two at Waterloo Farm! I think we are going to have plenty of snow for Santa and his sleigh tonight :)

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours Julie (including your girls). I'm with Pix, those are lovely sentiments and it's a beautiful serene photo of your home! Take care. Jen xx

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Julie! As they say, let's hope it's a good one. At least it will be a white one!
