`Twas the Night Before Christmas, by Beverly Hicks Burch

`Twas the Night Before Christmas

By Beverly Hicks Burch

I’d like to share a little of what has kept me so busy in the last few weeks. Believe me when I say this is “Bev lite”…yep, there’s a lot more somewhere still packed up in boxes sitting out in the garage. I’ve opted NOT to unpack those until the next move. The bonus – and little gift – I received while decorating this year? Well, I uncovered some of those quilts and unquilted tops crammed in with the Christmas decorations…and that Virginia is Professional Van Line packing for you…

…and to all a goodnight…Merry Christmas, everyone…God bless us all!!

Besides the obvious reason, the birth of the Christ Child, this Nativity is special to me because it belonged to a beloved aunt who passed away in 1973
