The holidays always make me nostalgic. Our family has so many great memories. I remember getting my new pj’s at Grandam JoAnn’s on Christmas Eve. We would put them on before we left. Then someone would say something about how we better get home so Santa could come. On the way home, we would be driving and Mom or Dad would say, “Look!”. We would look up in the sky, and every year we would see Rudolph’s red blinking nose. Then, Dad or Mom would say that we better hurry home and get in bed so Santa could come.
This year I’m going to be missing my pj’s.
Please add one of your Christmas memories.

I have many wonderful memories I could share, but there is one that I will never forget… It was Christmas Day 1999. This was the day that I became engaged and also the last Christmas we would spend with our Grandma Patsy. Christmas was our Grandma’s favorite holiday and she loved to spoil all of her grandchildren. I can remember us girls searching for our Hartoon’s box under the tree. She loved us all so much and we loved her back equally. I can remember her smiling that big smile of hers that Christmas and I know she will be smiling down at us as we celebrate Christmas this year.
Thanks for sharing your special memory, your Grandma Patsy was one of a kind, I miss her every day. You are certainly right about her smiling as she watches over us, wouldn’t she have loved her great grandchildren?
Lindsay, I am so glad you are part of my life, my Christmases and so many of my special memories. Love, Aunt Judy
I am a little late sharing and have so many great memories. We always had wonderful Christmases as children with both grandparents. It was different this year without any of them. I think we still had a wonderful Christmas with new pajamas for both the kids that would have made Grandma JoAnn smile, lots of children playing and having a great time that would have made Grand,a Patsy’s eye light up, Daddy put up beautiful Christmas lights that would have Grandpa Bob proud (although he might have added a few more figures), and then Roy and I bought ourselves an after Christmas gift that would have made Grandpa Charlie a little jealous (he always was a man to want the best a little like my husband). Yes I think they were all looking down and smiling and laughing about what a wonderful Christmas we had.
