Christmas with Mom.

Having a gift to open made Mom as giddy as a teenager getting dressed for her first date.  She kept that childlike recipient-enthusiasm her whole life.  Imagine her excitement when her oldest child, my sister, showed up a couple of days before Christmas laden with packages for the whole family–two for Mom.

Christmas morning.   Mom opened her first package, a beautiful sweater.  Her reaction wasn’t quite what my sister expected.  Suspiciously, Sissy picked up the discarded wrap, examined it, gave Mom the evil eye and said, “You opened it early and taped it back up!  You opened both of them!”  Hehehe.

  1. What a lovely Christmas memory and it’s lovely of you to take the time to share it. Loved the photograph of the nicely wrapped pressie too! I also wanted to say I’m passing on The Reader Appreciation Award on to you and your lovely blog. You can find out the details in my recent couple of posts. Congrats!
