My favorite Christmas memory was our first Christmas with our grandkids. They were old enough to really enjoy it and we were able to share the real meaning off Christmas with them. It’s not all about gifts it’s the joy of giving.
It was Christmas of 1980. I was pregnant with my first baby. My dad was very sick He had cancer. He made my mom bring him to see me. I was supposed to stay in bed because I tried to go into labor early. I couldn’t go to him so he came to me. It […]
One year, my daughter and I made all of our Christmas ornaments with a Spirograph!
In 2000, Christmas pictures with my miracle baby – we were told I would never conceive or carry a baby. She slept through the whole thing- we tried everything to wake her up but those 1st Christmas pictures of her sound asleep and so peaceful are such a treasure now that she’s in college.
In 2011 was my first Christmas in Bryan TX. All that I remember is that my brother got a DS and I said, “I want a DS too”. And every gift I got, I thought, “Is this a DS?” But instead of a DS, I got makeup.
My favorite Christmas memory would have to be from my childhood over 30 years ago and my cousin and I, every Christmas, would play in our outdoor nativity set that was in our front yard. We would pretend that we were part of the nativity scene and be very still as cars drove by. I […]

The day was November 26th, 2014… it was the day before Thanksgiving. I was compiling a list of things for which to be thankful. 2014 was the year my then-husband had decided life would be better with someone else, my father passed away and I lost a job I’d had for 22 years. Yeah, rough […]
Decorating the tree with my parents and brother, making and decorating Christmas cookies with my mom, attending midnight mass at church, and seeing the smile on my grandma’s face because she would get to see all of her family on Christmas.
My favorite Christmas memory was the first year I got to celebrate with my newborn son. It was a Christmas I’ll never forget.
My favorite Christmas memory was when I was younger and my mom would open up all the windows to let the crisp air in while she cleaned the house. I can still smell her cleaning agents and vanilla candles. At night my brother, sister and I were allowed to open one gift. It was always […]
I remember all my boys opening presents and all the families getting together and celebrating the day Jesus was born.
