Tis The Season...

For some reason I just haven't been able to put my brain around the fact the Christmas is coming, and coming FAST for that matter.  The idea of dragging out all of my Christmas decorations is weighing me down! I've had to remind myself that it's always that way, and then when I get started and begin to see the house transpired and the feeling of Christmas starts to creep in, I'm always glad that I finally broke down and got it done. I truly do love this time of year and all of the traditions we enjoy as a family!

The Kay Family Party
is the event of the season.
We've been meeting for years,
and for a good reason!
Besides eating and crafting,
which we all do so well.
(the eating part)
We have Santa show up
and the kids start to yell!


Getting together on a cold snowy night,
to make some treats is sure a

 Building a SNOWMAN with Bampa sure is fun,
you won't find another that compares to this one!

A tradition we started many years ago,
is exchanging ornments for the kids as they grow.
Our trees are loaded with these special things
It's fun to see what each year brings.

Luke was a ZOMBIE for Halloween
last year,
so the reason for his ornament was perfectly clear!

As my kids have grown and left the nest
they've thinned the tree but I'm still truly

The kids love the jammies they get every year,
putting them on always brings lots of cheer!

So it comes down to this as I drag out the mess,
I'm grateful for CHRISTMAS and would want nothing less.

There are so many things that I'm thankful for,
and as I hang up the STOCKINGS I'll be hanging ONE more!


  1. Aren't you one creative cat with your little "tis the season" poem! I'm very excited that you have finally decided to break down and let the Christmas spirit make it's way in! I get into Christmas as soon as Halloween is over! I'm very excited we are spending Christmas with you and to have Nixon's first Christmas as well. So, the house better be VERY decked out like old times when we come down in a couple weeks! Love ya
