    So here's the thing, because we are leaving for Mesa on the 15th we are having Family Christmas on the 9th. Gift openings around 2-3 dinner at 5 and games after. I am going to open early along with family gifts, gives me more presents to open. I will wont be able to post pics until late Monday afternoon, Daughter has medical appointments at cancer clinic then run her and grandson home, so will be late Monday evening before I get to get back onto the board. My SS present is sitting under the tree in it's original box, when shaken it sounds soft. No bells ringing...Maybe I should open now so I can post pictures......yes, yes, I an do that can't I ....

    Reba Mcentire Mary, Did You Know? Lyrics

    Songwriters: LOWRY, MARK / GREENE, BUDDY
    Mary, did you know
    That your baby boy will one day walk on water?
    Did you know
    That your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
    Did you know
    That your baby boy has come to make you new?
    This child that youve delivered
    Will soon deliver you
    [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/r/reba+mc..._20114568.html ]
    Mary, did you know
    That your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
    Did you know
    That your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
    Did you know
    That your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
    And when you kiss your little baby
    Youve kissed the face of god

    Mary, did you know?
    The blind will see
    The deaf will hear
    And the dead will live again
    The lame will leap
    The dumb will speak
    The praises of the lamb

    Mary, did you know
    That your baby boy is lord of all creation?
    Did you know
    That your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
    Did you know
    That your baby boy is heavens perfect lamb?
    This sleeping child you're holding
    Is the great I am
    I am Quilter Hear Me Roar...

    The Dolls' Christmas Party
    by Viola Roseborough
    It was the week before Christmas, and the dolls In the toy-shop played together all night. The biggest one was from Paris.
    One night she said, "We ought to have a party before Santa Claus carries us away to the little girls. I can dance, and I will show you how."
    "I can dance myself if you will pull the string," said a "Jim Crow" doll.
    "What shall we have for supper?" piped a little boy-doll in a Jersey suit. He was always thinking about eating.
    "Oh, dear," cried the French lady, "I don't know what we shall do for supper!"
    "I can get the supper," added a big rag doll. The other dolls had never liked her very well, but they thanked her now. She had taken lessons at a cooking-school, and knew how to make cake and candy. She gave French names to everything she made, and this made it taste better. Old Mother Hubbard was there, and she said the rag doll did not know how to cook anything.
    They danced in one of the great shop-windows. They opened a toy piano, and a singing-doll played "Comin' through the Rye," The dolls did not find that a good tune to dance by; but the lady did not know any other, although she was the most costly doll in the shop. Then they wound up a music-box, and danced by that. This did very well for some tunes; but they had to walk around when it played "Hail Columbia," and wait for something else. The "Jim Crow" doll had to dance by himself, for he could do nothing but a "break-down." He would not dance at all unless some one pulled his string. A toy monkey did this; but he would not stop when the dancer was tired. They had supper on one of the counters. The rag doll placed some boxes for tables. The supper was of candy, for there was nothing in the shop to eat but sugar hearts and eggs. The dolls like candy better than anything else, and the supper was splendid. Patsy McQuirk said he could not eat candy. He wanted to know what kind of a supper it was without any potatoes. He got very angry, put his hands into his pockets, and smoked his pipe. It was very uncivil for him to do so in company. The smoke made the little ladies sick, and they all tried to climb into a"horn of plenty" to get out of the way.
    Mother Hubbard and the two waiters tried to sing "I love Little Pussy;" but the tall one in a brigand hat opened his mouth wide, that the small dollies were afraid they might fall into it. The clown raised both arms in wonder, and Jack in the Box sprang up as high as me could to look down into the fellow's throat. All the baby-dolls in caps and long dresses had been put to bed. They woke up when the others were at supper, and began to cry. The big doll brought them some candy, and that kept them quiet for some time.
    The next morning a little girl found the toy piano open. She was sure the dolls had been playing on it. The grown-up people thought it had been left open the night before; but they do not understand dolls as well as little people do.

    Grandma's Christmas Gifts
    Grandma Burns sat knitting busily in the sun one bright morning the week before Christmas. The snow lay deep, and the hard crust glistened like silver. All at once she heard little sighs of grief outside her door. When she opened it there sat Peter and Jimmy Rice, two very poor little boys, with their faces in their hands; and they were crying.
    "My patience!" cried grandma. "What can be the matter with two bright little boys this sunny morning?"
    "We don't have no good times," sighed little Peter.
    "We can't slide. We haven't any sleds," whimpered Jimmy.
    "Why, of course boys can't have a good time without sleds," said grandma, cheerily. "Let us look about and see if we can't find something." And grandma's cap-border bobbed behind barrels and boxes in the shed and all among the cobwebs in the garret; but nothing could be found suitable.
    "Hum! I do believe this would do for little Pete;" and the dear old lady drew a large, pressed-tin pan off the top shelf in the pantry. A long, smooth butter-tray was found for Jimmy. Grandma shook her cap-border with laughter to see them skim over the hard crust in their queer sleds. And the boys shouted and swung their hands as they flew past the window.
    "I do expect they'll wear 'em about through," murmured grandma; "but boys must slide,—that's certain."
    And the pan was scoured as bright as a new silver dollar and the red paint was all gone off the wooden tray when Peter and Jimmy brought their sleds back.
    Grandma knitted faster than ever all that day, and her face was bright with smiles. She was planning something. She went to see Job Easter that night. He promised to make two small sleds for the pair of socks she was knitting.
    When the sleds were finished she dyed them red and drew a yellow horse upon each one. Grandma called them horses, but no one would have suspected it. Then the night before Christmas she drew on her great socks over her shoes to keep her from slipping, put on her hood and cloak, and dragged the little sleds over to Peter and Timmy's house.
    She hitched them to the door-latch, and went home laughing all the way.

    alright, here's the thing. i am about as good or gooder than good and if i get any gooder grann won't want me to come play cause she'll say i'm too good for my own good. so for the good of all that's good can i please open my box early? i haven't said one word about grann's drinking, or the 2 bottle trees she has hidden in her basement, only they're not hanging from branches, they're just stacked like big old blue spruces, one bottle on top of another and so on to the ceiling and then she starts a new tree. she's pretty good at the drinking thing--honest! i , of course, never touch the stuff because i'm the designated sewist and i run the big machines when, er , while she rests after all the exertion, and alcohol and stuff. so i think i deserve to open mine in the morning when i get up, because, unlike SOME people , i feel fine and i can see and the sound of rustling wrapping paper does not make me want to hurl. please don't make me wait!! i just got a manicure and i'm afraid i'll start biting my nails (BTW< they are flamenco pink, and it's the new gel stuff and they are gorgeous. if you haven't tried them yet, maybe you should, because they are really strong but not thick and they last 3 or 4 weeks typically) and i don't want to do that since i had them sharpened to open boxes more easily! so, pleez let me open my box! i might have a terminal disease and then i might not make it to sunday night to do the opening and you'd feel just awful that i missed it. i wouldn't want you to go through that, so i'd better open mine now. that makes a kot of sense, doesn't it?! yup, glad i thought of that!

    Nancia... Nope nice story and all but if I can't open early neither can you Dreamer on the other hand may have to wait an extra week if she is going to wait for the egg nog effects to wear off

    Can't believe that opening day is getting so close - sorry there seems to be a package in limbo but I am sure it is winging its way to you as we speak

    Oh, my Goodness, the things I miss when I am sleeping like and angel. Pigs are flying, with a smile, no less.

    Nancia may get in trouble for that BIG FAT FIB about the bottles in my basement. My basement sewing studio is all business, and none of it is Monkey Business! All drinking is done upstairs. The dogs can attest to that.

    AND NO ONE IS OPENING EARLY, MAYBE LATE, BUT NOT EARLY!!!!!!!
