Home for the Holidays



On Thursday evening, I'll see this scene though it will be colder and maybe some snow. It is my hometown.

It will be great to see familiar sights and be in a house so full of memories. All 30 of us will gather for Christmas in my parents' house.

In Indiana a song that we sing is, "Back Home Again In Indiana." It will be nice to be back!

The lyrics to the song:

First verse
I have always been a wand'rer
Over land and sea
Yet a moonbeam on the water
Casts a spell o'er me
A vision fair I see
Again I seem to be

Chorus
Back home again in Indiana,
And it seems that I can see
The gleaming candlelight, still burning bright,
Through the
sycamores for me.
The new-mown hay sends all its fragrance
Through the fields I used to roam.
When I dream about the moonlight on the
Wabash,
How I long for my Indiana home.

Second verse
Fancy paints on mem'ry's canvas
Scenes that we hold dear
We recall them in days after
Clearly they appear
And often times I see
A scene that's dear to me

Comments:
Kerri - you make me laugh! Can't wait to see you next week! Matthew and I have been enjoying your blog...wish we knew about it sooner.
 
Wish I could hear you sing it :)
