A rambling sort of post

It is now exactly 1 month until Christmas Eve - are you all ready for it?  I'm not...It feels like it has so suddenly sneaked up on us and I just don't feel ready just yet.  I love Christmas, the decorations, the Christmas songs (especially this one will always be a favourite of mine - click here).  I love watching our kids' faces light up and see the excitement as they count down the days.  I love trying to come up with special presents for special people and as last year, I love teaching my kids the real gift of giving when we delivered biscuits to the one retirement village.  Where the real reward was in seeing somebody smile.  So right now I'm working on getting ready.  A few things taking just a bit longer than I was hoping, but I'll get there. 

Do you have any special plans for Christmas?

Anyway -

It means Animals Cake in Hebrew. I translated it and that's what came up. :P

I must admit I really appreciated Christmas when the children were little. It doesn't quite have the same appeal now that the children are growing up. Presents are more expensive and the magic and spark have somewhat gone. Nevertheless it's still special to spend time with family.

So rather weird words

I am starting to get excited about Christmas now that there is a little snow on the ground. I cannot wait for my girls to come home and time with my family. B
