Who doesn't love Christmas , I know we do . The whole thing makes us all happy and cheerful. The music playing in the back ground and wrapping all the presents and putting them under our tree.

My parents didn’t have a lot of money while my siblings and I were growing up but they always made sure our Christmas was special. And having 4 kids and trying to make everyone seem special, at times was really ruff for them. When they could we would get one big surprise and all of us had to play with it. Granted not our older brother because he was to cool to play dolls with us.

The girls would have to share the gift which was not a big deal for us, we were all close and played together all the time. We always got our baby dolls and barbies, besides clothes and books and all that other stuff we got. I can remember this Christmas like it was yesterday, we wanted this Town House for ever and never thought we would get it.

 

Daddy had a special way of doing things and I can remember lining up at the top of the stairs, youngest to the oldest . And waiting for daddy to say ok come down. Mommy would be in the kitchen making coffee and hot cocoa and fresh biscuits, The tree would be lit and the fireplace would be on the tv. And what a surprise we got there under the tree was the Town House. We ran and hugged my parents and were so happy .

Of course me being the oldest girl I was in charge or so I thought I was. Just thinking about this Christmas makes me miss my parents more, its like I can smell daddy as I write this.

Have you ever wished so hard for something and actually received it and thought you were in heaven.  We were such good girls and got the house we wanted .

Im so excited about the walmart” Toy Land Event” can not wait to go and get some great toys for my niece and nephew. Christmas brings out the kid in all of us.
