WHY CAN'T EVERYDAY BE LIKE CHRISTMAS

Grinnin' like a hungry cat who just landed in a well stocked Aviary, her shinin' faced beamed as she said, "today I'm marrin' your son and you will really be my mom." December 1, 1995 , Geek Son married The Latin Lovin' Hillbilly and we gained another daughter. Our family was blessed more than Christmas dinner after the fast at a monastery when this one joined our happy clan.

On December third my sweet Mother-In-Love celebrated her 84th birthday surrounded by family and a big old cake piled high with icin'. Doesn't that smile just light up a room? Born in 1927, this lovely lady has seen more in our world than most of us could wrap our brains around. She is now livin' in an assisted livin' facility and lovin' it more than a fly loves sticky buns on Christmas Mornin'. Mom and my wonderful Father-In-Love would of celebrated their 65th weddin' anniversary on the eighth of December along with my Brother-Out-Law's (just kiddin') 49th birthday.

This handsome dude loves football and the Colts almost as much as he loves that Banana Split Cake. Zacharie is the oldest of our 'bonus' grandkiddos. He's a great big brother to Alexis, Jacob and little Ian. This awesome football player holds down a job as he hold up his grades. My heart bursts watchin' him grow into the super young fella he is. Zach celebrated his 17th birthday on the tenth. Woohoo....party on!!!!

Mischievous as a hyper Blue Heeler pup in a box full of kitties, this happy gent celebrated his birthday on the twelfth of December. This Ozark Farm Chick can't look at Joel without seein' my daddy all over that jubilant face. Oh how that smile melts this gals heart. He's a builder, a scientist and a lover of God. Did I mention he's a climber too? Yep, if we ever lose this one we've learned to simply look up. He climbs walls folks!!!

The Latin Lovin' Hibilly in all her orneriness was born December 14, 1975. Ya need rear view mirrors on the back of your ears 'round this one. Geek Son made his very dramatic entry into this world December 18th, 1974. This Mama's so very proud of the man, husband and father he's become but someone had to put a stop to all these celebrations. As Barney Fife said, "Nip it...Nip it in the bud!"

When our beautiful Social Butterfly found the Monarch of her dreams, ya know the one that made her little heart flutter, flip and go pitty~pat, a December weddin' was brought up. Miss Social said, "Oh no...Mama won't allow anymore hitchins or babies bein' birthed in December." This union took place in January. Ya'll know what happens when Mamas not happy! Heeheehhee! Let me tell ya'll, I've popped more than few proud buttons over this one too! She makes my heart sing.

Our Decembers are packed tighter than a clown car.....then we have Christmas. Here on the Ponderosa we are celebratin' Christmas on December 31st. It truly doesn't matter to this chick what day we celebrate as long as we celebrate together. Shouldn't we all be celebratin' the birth of our Lord and Savior everyday anyway? 'Just sayin'.......

Saturday on the Ponderosa the tree's 1,100 lights will be lit, the Christmas music jammin' in the background, the dinner table filled with all the trimmins and the fresh cider table filled with decant homemade candies. Farm Boy will gather the grandkiddos 'round his big old recliner to read the true Christmas story from the Bible. Presents will be opened as laughter fills the air but most of all we will celebrate Jesus. Yep, like Elvis sang on his October 15, 1957 single and on the United States best sellin' Christmas Album ever, "For if everyday could be just like Christmas, what a wonderful world this would be!" Just like Mr. Presley, I want to always celebrate Jesus each and every day so I ask, "Why Can't Everyday Be Like Christmas?"

GOD BLESS YA'LL. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAVE A VERY WONDERFUL NEW YEAR!!!

  4. I should've counted how many geeks you have in your family, because that is just awesome!
    Your best description though was of Joel as a love of God. So awesome to see in a young person!

  7. I do agree with that statement for sure. Every day should be like Christmas. No it doesn't matter at all which day we celebrate, as long as we do. You are blessed with so many December celebrations that it would be hard to keep up with them all, but I'm sure you do. I have an album with Elvis's Christmas songs on it and listen to that song often. Every day should be Christmas...in our hearts all year long. Merry Christmas !

  25. Nezzy, I'm going to adopt your MIL as my Gran if you don't mind. My Gran was also born in in 1927. And you just reminded me that, had she lived, she would be 84 today. The big evil "C" took her out. I sure do miss her. If you're up to it, you can read about her here. Thanks for reminding me. I owe you one!

    Branson is a magical place for us. We went there on our honeymoon (and before) and have been going back almost every year since then. Aren't the lights at Christmas beautiful? You MIL is very lucky to have you. Just think of the memories you gave her to replay in her mind over and over!

    Happy New Year to you and your family. You are definitely bringing it in the right way!

  50. What a busy month you have had. To end the year with the Christmas celebration, to me, is the best idea I've ever heard. As my Mom would have said, "you're sharp as a mashed potato sandwich". Love you, gal. Merry Christmas and Merry Christmas. xoxo

  60. Whew - - - - you make me tired just reading about your month of celebrations! A person would almost have to start planning for them in January!!! What joyous occasions you do have to shout about though - - and what a great way to bring in the New Year with a feast and gifts - - - as you remember the greatest gift any of us was ever given!

  69. We have a lot of birthdays in December, also, and it sure is fun. And I completely agree that everyday should be like Christmas: my one New Year Resolution is to behave as kindly and generously all year as I do around Christmas! I pray God help me to do it, because otherwise I prob'ly won't!

    You've got some fine looking kids there at the Ponderosa and I know y'all had a great Christmas. Let me wish ya a very Happy New Year, Nezzy!!!

  77. I learned a long time ago to celebrate when we were together and not worry about what day or time of the year it was. We lived really really REALLY far away from our family, so we'd have Christmas in the summers, when we got to come for a visit.
    I wanted to stop by and wish you and yours a very Happy New Year!!!!
