Miller Grove News for Dec. 7, 2011

E-mail Print PDF
The recent rain has been nice but I could take or leave the cold weather. I’m more of a spring and fall person myself.

There was a first time occurrence at the recent Miller Grove Basketball Tournament. Our boys took first place in the championship game against Chisum, winning the game only after going into overtime. If you missed that game you missed a good one. Congratulations, boys!

Happy birthday to Kip Knowles on Dec. 4; Jeremy Darrow, James Oler and Tyler Lennon on Dec. 5; Renee Flecker Connor on Dec. 6; Cletis Millsap and Darrell May on Dec. 9; and Joni Burns on Dec. 10.

Happy 16th anniversary to Blake and Misty Smith of the Greenview community on Dec. 8.

I have had a few teachers respond to a request that I made to them last week about taking a survey of their students’ Christmas wishes. This week I will share the student requests from Pre-K and Kindergarten.

PK’s wishes include: a Barbie car, a tea set, a tractor, a billy goat, a cat and dog, a ball, a toy jeep, a toy Santa, a Dora doll, a skateboard, a baby doll, play dough, and the item that nearly every child wants … a horse.

The things the Kindergarten students hope Santa will bring are: a guitar, a Barbie house, a remote control car, a football, a four-wheeler, a wrestler, a metal sword, Transformers, and finally, a trumpet.

That is quiet a wide range of items, but I’m sure Santa will deliver most of these presents.

If you are in the Christmas spirit and would like to send a Christmas memory to me to add to next week’s column, please feel free to do so. I’ll admit that I don’t feel particularly “full of Christmas cheer” this year. Not that I don’t enjoy Christmas, but it seems like each year it gets more commercial, more hectic, and less about the true meaning of Christmas.

I remember when I was young. Of course, we wanted toys, what kid doesn’t? But I always knew we were really traveling to different family members’ houses because we wanted to be together for Christmas and celebrate the birth of Jesus. Those times are good memories for me. But at the same time, I guess we are always making new memories with new Christmas experiences to look back on.

As you travel the highways and byways, don’t forget that all roads lead home and back to Miller Grove. Please send me any newsworthy information. My e-mail address is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
