Today I'd like to share a few pictures of my Christmases Past.
Elbert and I traveled to Chesapeake, Va. for Christmas in 1992. I gave my granddaughter a porcelain doll which I had made. I had fun making dolls for awhile and I am happy that Y. has one of them.
In 1994 my Mom was in an assisted living facility. We had a wonderful Christmas together. She passed away just 1 1/2 years later.
Just before Christmas of 1994 Elbert and I went to Opryland and here we are at the Opryland Hotel. Such a special holiday memory.
This was Christmas 1999 and it was our first Christmas in our new home in Virginia. I went all out with the decorations that year.
I shot this picture through a window of my grandchildren preparing Christmas dinner in my kitchen. It's wonderful having grandchildren who cook!! The year 2003
Most Christmas mornings we are at my daughter's house next door opening presents. In 2006 the gifts nearly dwarfed the tree.
In 2009 I was worn out from shopping in a mall in White Plains, NY with my daughters. Can't you tell I've about had it!!
What would Christmas be without snow! And, we got it big time in NY in 2010. Brrrr.
I never got to sit on Santa's lap when I was little. Now, I can mark that off my bucket list.
What are some of your favorite Christmas memories? I'd love to hear about them.
