Memories of Christmas past

As I sit here and think about my Christmas and all the things that happen and taken place it takes me back to a few Christmas to when the kids were younger.

Like Amy....she ALWAYS asked for Tonka trucks, you would give her a catalog (because back then you could look at a catalog and not the internet), she would sit with this big book on her lap and circle everything she wanted. The thing she circled were trucks, farm sets, more trucks and did I mention trucks. She did grown out of that stage but not for a really long time. Now she is married to a man w loves trucks...hummm was there something in all the truck liking....

David was more on the Techie side. He always wanted things that were more electronics's. They had these small computers he would sit and play with for wait that is what he still does...hummm in the blood I guess. He also loved taking things apart to see how they would work. One Christmas he wanted an Alphie robot type machine where you would put in a card and he did things like talk or you could play games with him. David you won't believe this but I did see an Alphie of today they still are selling him.

Stephanie was all girl!!! She wanted shoes and dress-up clothes and beads and jewelry. she would take off her shoes, hat and dress and lay them next to her so she would have them ready to be put on in the morning when she woke up. She loved and still loves pretty things!!!

Beth she had many interest but the one Christmas that comes to mind is when "Santa" brought her her play vanity. She was so surprised and just LOVED that piece of furniture. We put it in her room and she would sit there and put on her play makeup and she would get her sister's nail polish and put it on. By the age of 3 she was an expert in how to apply makeup and nail polish.

Those were the days and there were many more Christmas with all good memories. Some day it would be nice to be able to get them out of my head and on paper some where. Things to do when I no longer work I guess...
