Little at at time


I must say that this is my most favorite time of the year, and I probably have stated that mildly. I have always loved this time of the year. This year is crazy because I haven't even had time to decorate my house and that is so unlike me. Today I finally had time to get out my Christmas Bedspread. Yep, I have a Christmas Bedspread that my mom made me a few years ago. This bedspread means a lot to me and took a lot of time and effort. She made it after a song that I sang as a solo when I was five years old at a Christmas Ward Party. I still can't believe that I sang it all by myself at the age of 5. It is called Christmas. Each of the symbols on this blanket symbolize the letters in this song and this will always mean a lot to me.
In case you are interested this is how the song goes so that you can see the blanket and realize why there are some of the pictures on it.
C- is for the Candy wrapped around the Christmas tree
H- is for the happiness with all the family
R- is for the reindeer prancing by my window pane
I- is for the icing on the cake as sweet as sugar cane
S- is for the stocking on the chimney wall
T- is for the toys beneath the tree so tall
M- is for the mistletoe where everyone gets kissed
A- is for the angels that make up this Christmas list
S- is for dear Santa who makes every kid his pet,
Be good and he'll give you everything in his Christmas alphabet
