A Child At Christmas

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.                                                                     ~Laura Ingalls Wilder

  1. She’s a cutie….and that “wonder” in her eyes is what it’s all about isn’t it?! Merry Christmas……..

  2. Very sweet! And a Happy New Year too!

  3. What is it she is so carefully holding with wonder in her eyes?
    Once again, I am the first one up giving me just enough time to log on and wish you and your wonderful neighbors a blessed Christmas day. My laptop is on and just waiting for that CA call to begin our Christmas morning.♥

  4. What a sweet photo! Have a wonderful day, Dianna. Ours wrapped up last night with all the kids and grandkids here, plus my mom and step-dad. My mom left early this morning, headed back to Florida, and we are alone. The house is very quiet and empty right now. We will begin packing the car for our trip to Missouri later today.

  5. Another of your wonderful photos. She is lovely and so amazed at what she sees. Merry Xmas to you and JR………
