If it weren't for kids have you ever thought there wouldn't be no Santa Claus



Every year at 
Christmas Thyme 
I ask myself
can I 
MAKE THE MAGIC HAPPEN
again this year??????
Well.......this year was going to be no different......


the long lists of things to do


the endless baking , cookie making

and
 wrapping
BUT
then we found out

Our daughter Julie was expecting 

a little 
Christmas elf
named 
Nathan on December 26th!


and 
so this Noni became caught up in all the excitement 


of 
preparing for Nathans arrival!

Of course Nathan needed a 
Christmas stocking


so the
"Elf" was busy making Nathan and my SIL Joe's stockings...

And
of course Nathan would need 
Christmas jammies

AND

a
CHRISTMAS OUTFIT
But then ....... a few complications arose
 and 
Julie was put on bed rest for 2 weeks
She had to return to the hospital every 3 days 
for non-stress tests and ultra sounds
at  that point it was a matter of
and that we did
as her "due date" was changed from Dec 26 to, 
Dec 18 
then
 AGAIN changed to being admitted 
 December 19 to be induced.
I was able to go to the hospital to be with her as she labored
BUT
I watched and waited for 43 long hard hours
and 
saw what she had to endure to bring Nathan into this world
and
MAKE THE MAGIC 
happen for us

Love you........Mom xoxoxoxo
And sooooooooo
 the MAGIC of  Christmas has brought us the greatest gift of all
Our little Christmas elf 
Nathan

I wish you all
Merry Christmas
surrounded by the Magic that comes to those who


Hugs,
Lynn
