Christmas Eve is Here! Were YOU Good?

All of our childhood dreams and fantasies hinge on this day and night 🌝 Santa flying through the sky in a magical sleigh 🛷 delivering toys and gifts to all the good kids… Was Santa a big part of your life as a child? He was ‘IT’ for me… Santa with Elvis a very close second 😊 (I’m being serious baby)…

I think Santa was in awe of Elvis…

So, here’s to all the good boys and girls out there 🥂 Were making a comeback 🎅🏻

Merry Christmas 🎄

A Visit from St. Nicholas

By: Clement Clarke Moore

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her ’kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap, 
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow 
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer, 
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
“Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St. Nicholas too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a pedler just opening his pack.
His eyes—how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle,
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”

Have a Wonderful Christmas Eve!

Today is Exactly 4 Weeks Till Christmas Day! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

WOW! Is all I can say… These hard date markers are harsh reminders that I have let Christmas “sneak up on me” yet again!

Does reading this freak you out?! WOW!! Time is Flying by!

So much to do!

  •  I need to make a list…
  • Start that fitness program (maybe wait till new years? 🤔)
  • Plan the Christmas party
  • Do all the Christmas shopping 🛍
  • Get wrapping paper
  • Finish all the Christmas decorations!
  • Christmas cards!
  • Finish up year end tasks

These are just off the top of my head 😊

Christmas is Coming! Whether we are ready or not… I gotta get busy!

The whole world is screaming- Christmas! Sale! Shop! Buy! Hurry Up! Santa Claus 🎅! More! More! More!!!   Wow!

I’m trying to find  my way back to the basics…  What Christmas is all about!

With all the noise and the hustle and bustle of the season, the real reason we are taking time off and celebrating can get lost if we’re not careful.

I always feel a little magic when I watch this clip about what the meaning of Christmas is –

I for one am going to try to slow it down & enjoy the Christmas season. Maybe we can all find a little “Christmas Magic”! “It” – is what we all need 😊

Peace ☮️, Love ❤️ & Good Luck 🍀 this Holoday Season!

9 Tuesday’s Tiil Christmas? 🎃 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Did you know that Christmas is on a Tuesday this year? I didn’t either until the other day while running into a store for a quick purchase I had a lady say to me “Only 10 Tuesday’s left before Christmas”!

Don’t get so far ahead of yourself that you forget about today!

It seems to get earlier every year now… Blaring Christmas music in early October? Candy canes & sleighs 🛷…

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to carve a few more pumpkins 🎃 & go to a few more bonfires 🔥 before I start hanging Christmas stockings! Here’s to enjoying each season on its own merits 😊

Jeees! I haven’t even been to the Haunted Farm yet… Turn off jingle bells and let’s enjoy a happy Halloween or a Fall Fest… 

ps: Only 9 Tuesday’s till Christmas 😂
