Christmas Eve

I hope you’re all celebrating with loved ones tonight.


We had supper at Becky’s in Forest City – Jenny and Ryan are home.

Our girls had to stay home but Becky had presents for them. This is what happened when we got home with the squeaky toys.

Can you almost hear the barking?

Have a blessed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day remembering to be thankful for God’s greatest gift, His Son, Jesus Christ.

Merry Christmas from the Country Threads Blog!

    Merry Christmas Mary, to you and all the critters! Love your blog – it always brightens my day. Lightly falling snow and a crackling fire made the perfect Christmas Eve here in Montana last night. And today, more snow. Keep warm and safe, and thanks for all the wonderful stories this past year. Your house looks so cozy!

    There is a gentle fluff of snow falling from above here in western New York this Christmas morning. Itโ€™s beautiful. Warmest wishes to you, Mary, and all of you, who continue to share your lives with us. And the squeaky Hamburg toy was one of the favorites of the terrier we had previously.

        Marilyn, so sorry about your mom’s passing. The grieving is very hard. I lost my mom in Decembet of 2016, and it is getting better. I wear her winter coat and have gotten some nice compliments.
