happy holidays to you

so, I'll be spending some time with family this holiday season, so I thought I'd write a few of my favorite memories of holidays past. here goes....

* the anticipation of Christmas morning when I was a child... waking up and rushing to the stairs, just to be halted at the top until Dad got the video camera on it's tripod, focused, and running efficiently

* the food... oh my! it's sad, but food has been such a part of life as a child.... the cookies that Mom would make were endless.

* the minimim of ten strands of lights on the tree... Mom likes lights.

* driving around old-money neighborhoods and checking out the Christmas lights and decorations

* having a huge breakfast after all the gifts had been unwrapped and stockings sifted through

* going through each of my toys and playing with each one for a short time on Christmas day before the family went to visit relatives Christmas night

hope all has a wonderful holiday season filled with one's own good memories! be back soon...
