Christmas Remembered

January 15, 2014

 This month, I am working on my Christmas layouts and remembering not only the special moments that this holiday brought, but also remembering Christmases past.

And feeling so blessed for the special memories of loved ones that are gone and those who were home for the holidays.

"I will honor Christmas in my Heart, and try to keep it all year."
-  Charles Dickens quote

What are your favorite Christmas memories?  Please share...

Wishing you a blessed day, dear friends.

So precious Sheila!... your grandma looks so beautiful and I am so happy you rescued her cherished ornaments and the memories each one carries... love the photo of your children at home for Christmas too... my best Christmas memories are being in our old family home as a little girl... simple but beautiful decorations, yummy Christmas cookies mama baked... and on Christmas Day, we got to call and talk to my grandparents in New Mexico... back then, long distance calls were few and far between because they were so very expensive... I loved hearing my grandmothers voices on Christmas day!... half of the conversations back then were "can you hear me"? because long distance calls did not always come across clear... so, I would say "family" is my best Christmas memory... xoxo Julie Marie
