A few scenes of Christmas

By Richie Ann Ashcraft

The Ashcraft's had a great Christmas with all the traditional festivities.

We continued our annual tradition of swimming in Glenwood Springs on Christmas eve, followed by dinner No. 1 with family. Marty's family always serves oyster stew and it's something looked forward to all year long. The boys were allowed to open their one present, new pajamas and stuffed animals. The anticipation of Christmas of course keeps them up until they can't anymore.

Santa, being so kind and generous and able to look the other way this time of the year, gave the boys new bikes! They were intimidated and were happy to set those aside until the sun came up to focus on things wrapped in shiny paper.

Miles of paper and packaging later, the boys spread their new stuff out all over the house and promptly broke it all.

Oh well, we know they love us and were rewarded greatly with hugs and kisses and little boy tenderness.

I'm pretty sure we didn't leave anything out. There were cookies, food, prayer, and crazy aunts. (That's you Joanne!)

I watched the boys run by on Christmas day and I hoped that their memories of childhood Christmas' past were going to be enough to last them a lifetime! It's what makes all the effort worthwhile.
