Salsa Recipe 1 #10 can of whole peeled tomatoes (the big commercial size cans) or 4 of the regular sized cans if you can’t find the big one. 1 small onion 4-5 cloves of garlic (peeled) 1 bunch of cilantro (cut out as much stems as you can) 2 medium jalapenos (you can deseed them for less heat but I leave them in.) 2 tsp cumin

salt and pepper fresh lime juice (optional) Drain the juice from the tomatoes and set aside. Put the other ingredients in a food processor, and pulse until everything is finely chopped. Add in about 1/3 of the tomatoes and pulse until mixed thoroughly. Place into a large bowl. pulse the remaining tomatoes and mix into the bowl. Stir to combine. This makes a lot of salsa, so scale up or down accordingly. You can add more jalapenos depending on how hot you like it. Tomatoes absorb a lot of salt, so you may need to add more than you think, start small and you can always add more later. Being there are no preservatives in this, it will last about a week in the fridge. This recipe if followed makes enough for you and enough to give some out Richard Humphrey Irving, Texas

Silver Bells Christmas makes you feel emotional It may bring parties or thoughts devotional Whatever happens or what may be, Here is what Christmas time means to me. City sidewalk, busy sidewalks dressed in holiday style. In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas. Children laughing, people passing, meeting smile after smile, And on every street corner you’ll hear: Silver bells, silver bells, It’s Christmas time in the city. Ring-a-ling, hear them ring, soon it will be Christmas day. City street lights, even stop lights, blink a bright red and green, As the shoppers rush home with their treasures. Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch, This is Santa’s big scene, And above all this bustle you’ll hear: Silver bells, silver bells, It’s Christmas time in the city. Ring-a-ling, hear them ring, soon it will be Christmas day.

Frosty the Snow Man Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul, With a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal. Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say, He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day. There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found. For when they placed it on his head he began to dance around. O, Frosty the snowman was alive as he could be, And the children say he could laugh and play just the same as you and me. Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump, Look at Frosty go. Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump, Over the hills of snow.

Silent Night Silent night, holy night! All is calm, all is bright. Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child. Holy infant so tender and mild, Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace. Silent night, holy night! Shepherds quake at the sight. Glories stream from heaven afar Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia, Christ the Savior is born! Christ the Savior is born. Silent night, holy night! Son of God love’s pure light. Radiant beams from Thy holy face With dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus Lord, at Thy birth. Jesus Lord, at Thy birth.

Frosty the snowman knew the sun was hot that day, So he said, “Let’s run and we’ll have some fun now before I melt away.” Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand, Running here and there all around the square saying, Catch me if you can. He led them down the streets of town right to the traffic cop. And he only paused a moment when he heard him holler “Stop!” For Frosty the snow man had to hurry on his way, But he waved goodbye saying, “Don’t you cry, I’ll be back again some day.” Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump, Look at Frosty go. Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump, Over the hills of snow.

Away in the Manger

All I Want for Christmas

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head. The stars in the sky looked down where he lay, The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

Gee, if I could only have my two front teeth, then I could be with you “Merry Christmas.”

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes, But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes. I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky And stay by my cradle til morning is nigh. Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay Close by me forever, and love me, I pray. Bless all the dear children in thy tender care, And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.

God Rest You Merry Gentlemen God rest you merry, gentlemen, Let nothing you dismay, Remember Christ our Savior Was born on Christmas Day; To save us all from Satan’s power When we were gone astray. O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy! From God our heavenly Father A blessed angel came; And unto certain shepherds Brought tiding of the same; How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by name.

“Fear not, then,” said the angel, “Let nothing you affright; This day is born a Savior Of a pure virgin bright, To free all those who trust in him From Satan’s power and might.” Now to the Lord sing praises, All you within this place, And with true love and brotherhood Each other now embrace; this holy tide of Christmas Doth bring redeeming grace.

Jingle Bells Dashing through the snow In a one-horse open sleigh Through the fields we go Laughing all the way. Bells on bob-tail ring Making spirits bright What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight. Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh, O Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh. A day or two ago I thought I’d take a ride And soon Miss Fanny Bright Was seated by my side; The horse was lean and lank Misfortune seemed his lot, We ran into a drifted bank And there we got upsot. A day or two ago The story I must tell I went out on the snow And on my back I fell; A gent was riding by In a one-horse open sleigh He laughed at me as I there sprawling laid But quickly drove away. Go it while you’re young, Take the girls along And sing this sleighing song. Just bet a bob-tailed bay, Two-forty as his speed, Hitch him to an open sleigh and crack! You’ll take the lead.

Blue Christmas I’ll have a blue Christmas without you; I’ll be so blue thinking about you. Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree Won’t mean a thing if you’re not here with me I’ll have a blue Christmas, that’s certain; And when that blue heartache starts hurting, You’ll be doing all right with your Christmas of white, but I’ll have a blue, blue Christmas.

O Christmas Tree O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree! How are thy leaves so verdant! O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, How are thy leaves so verdant!

Rocking Around the Christmas Tree

Not only in the summertime, But even in winter is thy prime. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, How are thy leaves so verdant!

Rocking around the Christmas Tree at the Christmas party hop Mistletoe hung where you can see Every couple tries to stop

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, Much pleasure doth thou bring me! O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, Much pleasure doth thou bring me!

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear voices singing, “Let’s be jolly! Deck the halls with boughs of holly!”

For every year the Christmas tree, Brings to us all both joy and glee. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, Much pleasure doth thou bring me!

Rocking around the Christmas Tree Have a happy holiday Everyone’s dancing merrily In the new old-fashioned way Rocking around the Christmas Tree Let the Christmas Spirit ring Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie and we’ll do some caroling

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, Thy candles shine out brightly! O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, Thy candles shine out brightly! Each bough doth hold its tiny light, That makes each toy to sparkle bright. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, Thy candles shine out brightly!
