Carol of the Bells

Last night my brother and his girlfriend came for a visit. We reminisced about Christmases past, listened to Christmas carols from a set of records that I inherited from my mother, and laughed and joked about all the fun we had as kids during the Christmas season. It was wonderful.

My brother also reminded me of this hilarious Claymation skit that we watched when we were kids.

Oh my. This is just classic!

It was great to take a walk down memory lane again. As you age, I think a lot of those memories grow more and more dear. I know they always bring a smile to my face and a touch of sadness, as well. Those days are inching further and further away. People grow up, get married, have kids of their own, and start traditions of their own. That's the way life is. But I hope I can carry on those traditions with my daughter. :-)

No writing done last night, except for a freelance project, but I thought about my novel on and off all day long. I'm to an interesting point and I look forward to seeing what my characters decide to do!


  1. a freelance project is writing! I love thinking about our memories and trying to make precious new ones! You have so many wonderful ones to make with your daughter! Envy you!

  2. I loved it! Oh my gosh! I had forgotten all about that skit! I remember laughing like crazy when I was little! Thanks for posting!

  3. That's the beauty of starting traditions with your daughter - you can pass along your family's traditions, giving her a sense of history, and sprinkle in fun new ones unique to you & her!

  4. Somehow I never saw that video--I love it! Thanks for posting it, Melissa.

    Sounds like you're at an exciting place in the writing...

  5. What a great evening. Glad it was yours!

  6. Terri - You're right - it IS writing. My problem is I don't think I'm actually writing unless I work on the novel! ;-)

    Giddymom - Glad you enjoyed it! It is such a funny skit.

    Joanne - You're so right. I think we're already starting to build some traditions of our own. :-)

    Christine - Exciting and SCARY place as I'm not sure I know where things are going to end up! Must trust the process, I guess.

    Angie - It was such a fun evening - need more of those! People don't have enough time to just visit each other sad.


I love to hear from you!
