Memories of Christmas Past

This week for
We are supposed to share favorite
Christmas Memories
This was my second Christmas.
I was born in the summer so I was only
four months old my first Christmas.
I was still the only grandchild
As you can see by looking at my Mom in the red
I wouldn't be the only grandchild for long!

This is my Grama
(My Mom's Mom)
She passed away about 15 years ago
I still miss her!

By the next Christmas I had
sweet baby sister

We lost our precious Sally to
leukemia in 1970 at age 6
But I know we will be together again
some day!
This is me with Santa.
As you can tell, the jolly old elf
wasn't scary to me!

Pink Saturday!

LillySue, I just love that picture of you in the red wagon. You don't have that around by chance do you? I wished I still had some of my Christmas toys to this day. Thanks for sharing and please stop by and let you share my Christmas memory.
Hugs and glitter, Patti

I just love your pictures at Christmas time. It looks like you got your red had from your grandma?

Yes, I believe too that you will see you sister one day.

On this first Saturday of December ♥Jappy Pink Saturday♥. I was away for a while and sure missed running around the blogs arnd seeing all of the goodies everyone was sharing.

Thanks for the memory...

I remember when all of the women would wear a dress on the holidays. Boy, that sure was a long time ago, wasn't it?

It was a blessing for you to make my morning so much fun. Hoping that you and those you care about spend a wonderful weekend making memories that will last a lifetime☺

Happy Pink Saturday, LillySue.

Just look at what a little doll you were, and you still are. Your photos show the love shared in your family.

I was saddened to learn about your sister. I know we are not supposed to hate, but I do hate cancer. I pray that some day there will be a cure for all cancers.
