Happy Pink Saturday

This week we were asked by Our favorite Host~BEVERLY~ to tell a story about our favorite Childhood Memories during Christmas.. I have so many sweet memories, I would never have enough room., so Im going to keep it short and sweet :)


Making Holiday Gingerbread Cookies with my mom, Making the annual Pinata for Christmas Eve, My Dad putting up his Train around the tree, which he still does, even with us all grown up, the pic of him is from last year, isnt he adorable,,like a little kid, Celebrating Christmas Eve with my WHOLE family. Watching my dear sweet uncle Mike who never ate anything sweet, sneaking Christmas Cookies :), and one of the many special memories of my grandparents arriving on Christmas Eve, Granddad holding us tight and looking us straight in the eye, with his beautiful BLue eyes, and commenting with his heavy british accent how much we have grown. Oh, I can hear, feel and smell him right now. Need to get a tissue now.

I hope everyone cherishes all their special memories, and make new ones .
Have a safe and Happy Pink Saturday.
~Hugs to all

I love the picture of your dad and the train. What wonderful memories you have to cherish. I was raised by my grandparents and Christmas was fun and exciting with so many people around. I still have ornaments that were on the tree when I was growing up and treasure them. I had wonderful and loving grandparents who took my sister and I after raising 5 sons. They have been gone many, many years but their memory lingers on and on.
Hugs and Blessings....Pauline

I spent some time here, and teared up! Such a lovely memory, and almost... The note sent to you by an eBay customer is finally what got to me. As an eleven year eBay seller, I know whether it is handmade or supplies, we pour our hearts and soul into everything we do there. We spend so much time on each detail. Often we are paid pennies per hour for our work. To have someone appreciate it, is priceless.

What wonderful Santas- the whole bunch, and I would be so proud to have made a head much less the whole thing! Lovely.
And dad is such a dear.
