Merry Christmas, one and all!
I do so hope that everyone is having a merry Christmas! I know I am. Despite the fact that it has been storming and raining all day, my aunt and I are making the most of it by playing an intense game of scrabble (I’m winning, by the way. 😉 )
My holiday is being spent in a Mississippi small town with my dad’s family. There are some things about a southern Christmas that you simply fall in love with. One being my mawmaw and pawpaw’s delectable old-fashioned cooking. I may be gaining weight, but I’m not compaining!
I love the joy of being surrounded by family. We’re all a little crazy, and sure, Mawmaw’s house gets unbelievably crowded and loud, but we love each other-most of the time, that is! Haha!
Hearing stories about the past is something I have always loved and always will, and something I get everytime I am here. Not to mention the tales about my dad when he was young-that never gets old!
My mawmaw is one of the most fun people in the history of human beings. She has been known to sweep you into a dance when you least expect it. So much of yesterday and today has been spent singing loud and dancing around the kitchen. I love it!
My cousin and I cannot possibly get together and not have a good time. We are kindred spirits, to be sure, and we keep each other (and those around us) entertained.
So a Mississippi Christmas is my favorite kind. Food, family, and fun all wrapped up in one. Get it? Wrapped up like a Christmas present! 😉 Here comes all the family, so I have to get back to socializing. Have a very merry Christmas, and GOD BLESS US, EVERY ONE!
