Christmas when I was a kid

Christmas was always exciting as a kid! I remember the anticipation, the sleepless Christmas Eves wondering what Santa would bring! How fun!

Me as a baby

The stupid photos with Santa…

Me a little older with my brother and Santa

Thanksgiving was always at Grandma and Grandpa’s,

but Christmas was always at our home…

Grandma always put up a tree, however – even if it was just one like this!

(remember the color wheel?)

This tree always made me laugh! I so liked the live trees we had at home…

(don’t you just love the old tv?!)

We had fun as kids! Grandpa always made something special.

One year it was a chariot, fully working using kid-power instead of horses (see the blog post from May 5, 2021).

One year I remember a wooden box with a dollar coin in it. Of course, the puzzle box didn’t fully open so you could never get the coin out! Lol

Grandpa was jokester, for sure!

Let me know in the comments what YOUR favorite memory for Christmas is!
