While l love being the mom to 6, and have favorite Christmas memories with my children, my favorite memory goes back to my childhood. My family moved to Austin when I was 8 and at that time Austin was the size of BCS is now. That’s so hard to believe! Every Christmas my father would take me, and my three younger brothers, to the 155 foot tall Zilker Christmas tree. While holding one ankle and one wrist, he would spin me around while I looked up at the spinning lights. He would put me down, and I would walk like I was drunk. We all laughed as he took turns spinning my brothers too. As a child of God, it’s that simple, innocent fun, that I miss most; for me and my kids.
