What were your memories?
I always did. I was spoiled rotten (still am) haha.
Decorating the house with my mom. She was always into it when we were kids. We'd make cookies and put them in Christmas tins for our neighbors and friends. I really can't remember much about the gifts I got, but I always remember getting a tree and decorating the house with my mom. Best memories ever.
We always had a great Christmas. My mom, sister and I made candy and cookies every year and we always did it together until my sister moved away. Now mom and I do it all but we still do every last bit of it together.
I remember one Christmas when I was 5. We were spending our second Christmas on Kodiak Island. My mom ordered my sister and I American Dolls. My sister got Samantha, and I got the baby. I got a bassinet, clothes, and a baby stroller. I remember this Christmas so well. Mostly because half of the stuff didn't get there, lol! I continued to get Christmas presents into February because it took so long to ship to Kodiak. :)
Yes!! My dad loved Christmas! We would get the tree and he had a rule that no one could start decorating till he put the first ornament on. So he would stand there with one ornament and a bare tree contemplating FOREVER it seemed as to where to put it. Just to tease us. lol. And always with Christmas music playing. The same with Christmas morning...he would sit there and say things like "well I need bacon and eggs before we open presents..." just to make us squeal because we were so excited and impatient. The whole time grinning at us.
We didnt have real expensive Christmases but we always had a ton of gifts. Seems like it would take us hours. My mom even wrapped each little thing in our stockings.
Then we'd go to my Grandma's for dinner.
I have great fond memories of Christmas when I was a child.
Quoting beerabitch69:I always did. I was spoiled rotten (still am) haha.
Oh man, there are so many!
Making Christmas decorations to go on the walls with my mom. We used to make tons of fudge, chex mix, cookies and other goodies to make party trays to take with us when we went visiting. We went to the family Christmas party on Christmas eve, ,and we were there til well after midnight. My dad putting up all the outside Christmas lights. Going to the dine in Pizza Hut (it was a tradition of ours), then going to the Christmas tree lot to find our perfect tree. Setting up the tree with some music on, eating cookies and throwing tinsel everywhere. Christmas morning my parents would get up early and make a huge breakfast...we would all eat breakfast in our pj's and robes and then open presents. Christmas day we would make visits to my dads parents, then go back up to my moms family for Christmas dinner. I was definitely spoiled but I have a crazy appreciation for my parents now.
