My Memorable 2010 Christmas


I was asked to share a memorable Christmas moment from 2010 or earlier from Dana's blog. Click here to visit her blog, and have a chance to read memories from others and share your own. There's also a chance at some incredible blog candy!


This past Christmas, our family created some incredible memories. It was our daughters 1st Christmas, one that we'll learn from and also never forget. We didn't have a whole lot of $ to begin with, but we did buy a couple of things for our daughter. A few days before Christmas, we were suprised at the door by 2 angels who gave us a turkey for Christmas, and a huge huge box of food, and some toys for me to wrap for our daughter. I have never experienced anything like that and I am forever grateful. I wanted Christmas to be perfect because of a couple of things...it was my daughters 1st, and it's my favourite holiday of the year. What I learnt is that babies enjoy boxes and paper more than toys, so next year...she just might get that lol...nah. My daughter and I also got to make cookies together...she dug her hands into the bowl with the cookie mix, and the icing bowl and the sprinkle bowl...and it was all caught on camera! A tradition in my family is to go out on Dec 23 around town looking at Christmas lights. Fortunately, we were able to do that this year with our daughter...something we hope to carry on to years in the future. Our daughter also wrote her 1st letter to Santa (with mommy's help of course) I took her into the post office, and she held onto that letter ever so tightly, didn't want to give it to the postal clerk lol. She did get one in reply, and it was just so sweet watching her open her letter from Santa!! So, those are a few of my favourite memories from this past Christmas.
The photo is a picture of my daughter in her Christmas Dress...I tried doing a Christmas photo shoot, and it worked!
