My Christmas House

This couldn't go unsaid...

Tonight I started my Christmas countdown on this blog. As I wrote the first post, and started thinking of a recipe to write I started to think about my step mother Fran. 

This is usually the time of year where she just lights up. She loves Christmas!! I remember growing up our tree was up and Christmas music playing sometimes before Thanksgiving. We would go buy a flocked tree. I don't even know if they do that here in Minnesota, or anywhere anymore for that matter. 
With the tree came decorations. And she still has the same decorations( and some new ones) that we had growing up.
Let's not even get into the decorations we had outside our house. You literally felt like you were in a Christmas Village! 
Sure times change. Kids grow up, people get older. Some of the decorations don't last through the years. But we always have the memories. And that is what she did. She gave us some of the best Christmas memories.

Now that I'm older and have a family of my own I enjoy the decorations! I do wait until December 5th to get my tree, but the Christmas music starts the minute they hit the radio on Thanksgiving.
Christmas decorations go outside the house the day after Thanksgiving.
And now since the miles separate her and I we talk on the phone. We share recipes, we gripe about the darn lights and how much we need to spend on new ones this year. 

This post is for you Fran! Get home I have new recipes!

Please keep Fran in your prayers for the coming days. She is currently in ICU in critical condition. She had another blood transfusion but is still in need of more prayers and medical attention at this time. 
Also please pray for my dad and her children.
