12 Days of Christmas Challenge Day 6


Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope it’s going well for you! Today it’s cold and windy in the Sun City! I saw a little bit of the white stuff when I was driving to work this morning. Thankfully the sun came out but it’s still cold and windy!

Today is Day 6 of the 12 days of Christmas Challenge for me! Thank you to Scales Simple for nominating me for this wonderful challenge! Today the list calls for sharing a fond childhood Christmas memory. I previously shared it in a post about my Christmas in 1986. I was a five-year old in Kindergarten at the time. If you can believe it, I was attending a private Catholic school in central El Paso. My favorite gift in 1986 was a talking Teddy Ruxpin stuffed bear. He had a cassette player in his back. Feel free to read more about it by clicking on the link below:

All of my readers are still welcome to participate in this challenge. I realize it’s long but it’s really fun!

  3. Actually on of my favorite Christmases was when my son was 9 and on the cusp of not believing in Santa anymore. We left town to be with family on December 22nd and didn’t return until December 28th. We had arranged for a friend to come in and decorate our tree and put the Christmas presents under the tree while we were gone. When my son walked in the house he started screaming, “I do believe! I do believe!” It was the most joyous thing I have ever seen.
