I would have to say it is the Christmas that my mom got me and my sisters one of those plastic play kitchens. I remember hearing her putting it together or what I thought was her putting it together. Christmas morning we woke up and there was my mom and this beautiful new toy for us with a big bow on it. We loved that kitchen set and played with for many years after that. It was not until recently, that as a mother myself, I found out that Christmas present was not brand new. While I was growing up, Mom was very poor and she had found it on the side of the road brought it home, cleaned it up and made it look brand new for us. I think this one of my favorite memories!
