Christmas 2010 Memories...

Jam cake...

Green felt stockings stuffed with one orange and one apple...

Rook games til midnight...

Cousins that would have the opportunity to torture me once a year by hanging me upside down by my feet (Tony and Timmy...)

Pop Pop shaking every gift to see if any money might be hid in it, and Grandma reading the notes aloud that were in her packages sent from Aunt Carol and Aunt Jan...
Santa (Which was Bob Barnett every year) entering the front door and passing out candy canes...

Never understanding what the adults could possibly talk about so long while eating dinner (dinner first presents after dinner...)

Memories forever engraved in my mind, that seem like it was just yesterday. If I could go back I think I would eat the jam cake a little slower..

Say thank you more than once for the one apple and one orange in my green felt stocking...

Watch a rook game and actually learn how to play..

Hide money in every gift Pop Pop had and take in the look on my Grandma's face a little longer as she beamed with joy while reading notes from her girls...

Hugged Santa's (Bob Barnett) neck for even thinking about entering the Mosby house on Beech Grove Road...

Thank the adults for talking about EVERYTHING for HOURS so I could spend more time with my family (yes even Timmy and Tony)

Memories are made everyday and even the smallest thing could be something that shoots you straight back in time, like you were there all over again. It may not be green felt stockings, jam cake or rook games but we all have something that takes us back in time... Praying you will take time to make memories with your family that they will cherish and share with others someday.

Blessings, M

Thanks for sharing your Christmas with us.I was hoping to get to talk to everyone during my call, but didn't get to. Maybe next yr.
Looking at the picture of our Christmas at moms, it makes you realize just how many of the family aren't with us anymore.Time has a way of going on, doesn't it. Money couldn't buy the video we had done and that is my gift from mom each year as we start the season. Nothing like a good cry to help with the holidays! You do a great job with your blog. Keep sharing and your family in Indiana will keep reading. Love you gal!!
