The More Things Change...

The camera has changed and yet the faces seem remarkably familiar. 
Christmas with family may change every year. 
And  yet, the wonder remains the same.
 Boys wonder if they will get enough to eat at the kid's table.
 The brothers wonder if they will ever figure out how to play this new game.
Mom wonders if she will ever find all the pieces to the gifts that her girls are opening as she patiently helps Grandma. 
 I wonder how long they will play with those.
 I wonder if everyone will get a turn to play electric baseball.
After weeks of preparation 
 Christmas finally arrives.
It is over in a flash 
Before you know it Grandma is tired and sending everyone out the door.

  1. I couldn't stop staring at the furniture and how dressed up everyone was right down to the last child...Now that does bring back memories for sure. Thank you for sharing!
