Wishing a Beautiful Christmas to All ~

A little Christmas cheer from my home to yours ~
~ Merry Christmas ~ 
~ Frohe Weihnachten ~ 


The Christmas tree that stands so beautiful and tall, adorned with ornaments as old as I am . . . belonged to my beautiful mom (1933~2010).  I was blessed to inherit her family room tree (she always had two artificial trees standing in her home) and ornaments. The furry little kitty (who is not real) laying on mom's wicker chair, always hung out in my mom's office . . . he's now comfy in my home and enjoying Christmas Day.  

I also inherited mom's Thomas Kinkade Christmas Village collection . . . it's a beautiful village and each time I look at it . . . I smile and mom and all the memories warm my heart and I know she is here with our family.

  ~ Happy Holidays and warm Christmas wishes to all . . . to our friends and family  . . . to remembering all of those who have gone before us, keeping our Ancestors close to our hearts ~ and to making many new memories in the New Year for generations to come . May all your wishes come true ~

In Loving Memory of Uncle Helmut ~ 1940 ~ 1994 ~

1940 ~ 1994

Today, the 20th day of December is the anniversary of the death of my maternal Uncle Helmut. Uncle Helmut was an identical twin to his brother, Adalbert Haf ~ 3 Oct. 1940 ~ 2 October 2004.

Uncle Helmut and uncle Adalbert died of the same disease exactly ten years apart. Their deaths have been very hard on our family . . . we miss you both. You can not mention one without the other.

~Rest in Peace~
