Do you have the Christmas Spirit? I do! My son got my tree up and fully decorated and I have my Elvis Christmas CD playing as I wrap gifts so I can even fill the spirit of Christmas. Cindy has my rolls baked and we are all looking forward to a Christmas Eve get together. A happy time of the year for everyone. Cant wait for the grandchildren to fill my living room with laughter and chatter.
