Christmas Magic and Sleepy Time


Every year Christmas becomes a little more complicated.



As we add to our village thanks to yard sale finds over the summer...



The Christmas Village comes alive...



Then just like magic...  a train goes around the track and houses light up.



The carnival comes to life...



It's a lot of work.



But one day our grandchildren will talk about 'once upon a time'....



When Grammy and PopPop had a Magical Village that lived inside their living room at Christmastime.



And our hard work will not be for nothing...  The memory of the magic will live on.



Dear Diary,

My chair was moved.  My window is not reachable.  I have nothing to live for.  I'm going to sleep.  Gracie.
