Question Of The Week
When I think of Christmas as a child, I picture the first of two houses my family lived in. I see my brothers and sisters. I see Caroline and me in old school flannel nightgowns.
I remember walking out to look for Santa in the cold dark night. I recall rushing to bed and then hearing the reindeer land on our roof. My eyes shut immediately and off to sleep I went.
When I conjure up memories of favorite gifts, I always go back to a huge Hello Kitty bag filled with goodies galore. Stickers, notebooks, pencils, erasers, a pencil pouch, etc......all things a little girl would love. I can't remember if Santa or my parents gave it to me....there was a clear distinction in our house growing up.....but I cherished it.
This makes me wonder what our kids will remember as they get older.
