My favorite Christmas memory has to be the time my parents surprised us with a trip to New York City! All 7 members of my family were stuffed into one tiny New York apartment, but it is still one of my fondest Christmas memories.
My favorite Christmas memory was in 1999. My mother had cervical cancer and we knew she would pass on soon. We decided to make this her happiest Christmas. We had a lot of love and food. We took her around to see all the Christmas lights. We were so blessed to have that time with her. […]
My favorite Christmas memory was when I was 15. All my family was in town this year and we were all around the piano on Christmas eve singing all kinds of songs as my grandpa played. We then went to bed and woke up and enjoyed Christmas all under the same roof. We also jumped […]
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 […]
About five years ago we went to our favorite restaurant and had planned on Skyping with our daughter Adrianna as she was many miles away serving in the Army. While everyone was ordering I looked up and standing there was my daughter in her uniform! What a blessing and surprise as well.
My favorite Christmas memory is from 2007–My husband and I got married 3 days before Christmas. Our wedding was surrounded with all the Christmas things (Christmas trees, poinsettias, lights, ornaments) but most importantly we had family and friends who rearranged their schedules to make sure they were in attendance! For our Wedding favors, I decorated […]
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 […]
Growing up in an un-wealthy family of ten was always hard especially on Christmas. There was one Christmas, in particular, we received a blue Santa. When they pulled up to our home and brought all kinds of boxes of food and toys I felt like I was the happiest girl in the world!! even though […]
We had just had the roughest year, financially, that we had ever had as a family, and we had two teenage daughters in our home. They attended a teen girls Bible study class, and every girl was supposed to fill out a form to receive a gift at the Christmas party. Our girls opted out […]
