Hello, everyone! Gretchen here again in blog-land! First of all, let me just take a moment to tell everyone who didn't yet realize....CHRISTMAS IS NEXT WEEK!!! AAAhhhhh!!! I knew it was December, I knew we were in the teens on the calendar, I have a bunch of my shopping done and have even wrapped 3-people's-worth of presents. But, I didn't realize C-Day was actually next week until yesterday - even though I have a calendar in front of me 24/7. It's crunch time!
I know why I didn't "get" it. It's because our Falcsik Family Christmas Sing-a-Long was really, really early this year! On December 5 we all gathered together at sister Sally's house (hubby, Gary) for our 23rd annual gathering. Everyone brings their instrument of choice...guitars, flutes, mandolins, banjo's, recorders, or even kazoos. The handmade song books (laminated covers and all) are passed around and random voices start calling out page numbers and song titles!
Yes, this get-together marks the Falcsik Family Christmas Season. I guess having it so early this year threw me off kilter. I'll really have to put myself in gear over the next week and finish up some shopping, get baking and just try to take in all the pretty decorations, lights, sounds of this wonderful time of year. I love it all!
So, that's a taste of our annual family tradition. We would LOVE to hear all about yours! If you have a moment, please comment below and share one with us today! Thanks for reading, everyone, and I hope you all have a very, Merry Christmas....don't forget, NEXT WEEK! - Gretchen
