Well, X was a very though one. I was not going to do X until my mom suggested I look at my ABC books I had as a child.
Several of the ABC and word books I had as a child.
While Little Golden books may not be the greatest literature I had a lot as a child and they were some of my favorite books. The red Word book in the back and the Little Golden Picture Dictionary were my favorite. I enjoyed looking at the books and the pictures.
X is for Xmas, X-ray and Xylophone
One of my childhood favorites, I enjoyed going looking at the pages of the Picture dictionary and naming all the pictures. Guess I’ve always been a bit of a nerd.
This one has a rhyme for each letter of the Alphabet.

Hope you are having a Merry Christmas. I am taking a break from normal blog for the holidays until next week. Until then ….
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 NIV
Things are busy getting ready for Christmas but thought I would share some more seasonal music. Today’s selection is “O, Holy Night” preformed by Trans Siberian Orchestra.
May you have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year — DH
Found this one thanks to a suggestion from a reader. The song is Joy by Apollo 100. It is their take on Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.
I had never heard of Apollo 100 but I liked the song. According to Wikipedia they were a short-lived instrumental group from Britian founded by arranger Tom Parker. Joy was their first single and has been featured in several movies.
Well, once again the Big Guy is a gainfully employed educator after spending the past few years as a grad student. For a year or so we have been a one car family with the Big Guy’s new job it is necessary to have a second car. Hopefully, this one will last as long as our 1991 Legacy.

Today is our our tenth anniversary and I am continuing the theme from my Tuesday and Wednesday posts. We were married in the same country church were my mom grew up and my grandparents were married.
This picture was taken in the summer so the it looked quite different in December. That part of Texas doesn’t really get much snow instead it often rains in the winter. It was very cold and rainy that day. The roads dirt roads were a mess. Even though it was cold we had to have the windows open before the service. It seems that sometime between church on Sunday and our rehearsal on Friday evening a skunk had crawled under the pulpit area. Fortunately, by Saturday afternoon most of the smell was gone.
