Now that I've got you searching for your warm & fuzzy PJs, go see Donna and read her memories about the home-made, hand-me-down dress that meant so much; a memory to warm up the coldest heart.
.......Christmas, she cut her wedding dress apart at the seams and ironed the resulting odd shaped pieces of material flat. Then she took a paper pattern sized to fit a small girl (me).......
I'm really enjoying reading about these memorable Christmas presents. You learn a lot about a person by what it is that they treasure most. For some it's material things, $$$, that matter but for the lucky ones it's their memories of love and hope shared with the special people in their lives.
Here's hoping that you and yours are building memories that will a lifetime.
BTW: I have another sister who has decided to try her hand at blogging. Y'all meet Tina (the redhead of the family) at Somewhere In Nowhere. Go tell Tina "HI" and help get her hit count up.
