Christmas Countdown

Christmas Memories in My Heart is a place for me to share all things related to Christmas, which is my favorite time of the year. I plan and prepare for the holidays all year, so that I can enjoy that busy time without having to stress about shopping and all the details of the season.

I am actually able to decorate and then enjoy the spirit of the holidays and celebrate Jesus' birth and the reason for the season.

You can find links to my three favorite holiday sites in my sidebar. They are Organized Christmas, Our Home for the Holidays, and Magical Holiday Home. All three of these special places are like my home away from home. I have cyber friends there who I feel a great bond with and we share a common love of Christmas. We understand each other and support each other in our quest to have magical, wonderful holidays.

Please come back to visit often.

Small nativity on bath window ledge

Small nativity given to my Dad on Christmas Day while in the hospital his last Christmas. One of the women from his assisted living complex and her husband visited Daddy on Christmas Day and gave him this. He was so proud of their visit and the token gift. He had had surgery the day before and was pretty much out of it, but he remembered them coming to visit early that morn.

These little girls were my late MIL's. She had a huge collection of figurines of all types. I display some of her Christmas things every year.

Nativity from hall shelf

More of dear Ida's holiday figurines

Nativity that adorns the top of this shelf in the hall outside the bathroom. This was one of my Mom's many nativities. I have many of her others displayed. None were anything special, except in sentiment. They bring a little joy to the holidays for me now that she is gone.

View of the entire shelf in the hall

Tree in adult daughter's room. She is living back at home at the moment and still decorates with the bright neon colors. The tree looks a little dark, but it isn't in real life since it sports shiny purple, lime, and hot pink bulbs.

Singing cactus

Thank you for stopping by and taking my tour. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Christmas is a magical time of the year when we are able to share with others. It is so much more gratifying to give than to receive and it should never be about the amount of the gifts. The best gifts are those that come from the heart with love.
The birth of the Christ Child was the greatest gift of all and came to us from God. Remember, He is the reason for the season.
