On Nov 28, 1995, we lost our Dad after a dreadful battle with cancer. He was a faithful Christian, a man of prayer, a loving father that loved the Lord. Words could not express the sadness our family felt facing the Christmas season without him. It was during this time that my older sister, Ann, […]

I’d always had bad Christmases. My parents were divorced, my mom kind of wasn’t there some of those years and my dad wasn’t really talking back in past years. But, at the age of 22 God blessed me with a son and a year later a daughter. Now, my son being a toddler and my […]
One Christmas in particular stands out as a funny memory. My dad and grandad spent many nights in the back room of our house behind closed doors. Almost as soon as they both came home from work they raced to get to that room. I knew at this age that “Santa” must be working on […]
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.

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.
