We never celebrated Christmas again in our house and I don't think that I expected to. Once was enought and was totally magical.

Win a Portrait - Sure I'll try
Kim over at Laketrees has posted a challenge for a free portrait. Have you seen her work - it's amazing. So I think I submitted this picture, but being somewhat challenged in where and what to link I may not have actually entered but what the heck! I posted this picture of me and mom taken a few years ago - as I can't imagine holidays without my family. I also told about the one time that we celebrated Christmas in our house. I was about 6 and I don't know what made my parents decide to give us this treat. Dad's family is Catholic so perhaps it was being exposed to all their Christmas celebrations that gave them the idea. Perhaps it was us kids begging - I just don't know. But we got a tiny Ceramic tree that plugged in and had tiny little colored lights, and the next morning there were presents on the living room chair. My brother was too young to know what was going on , but I was overjoyed with my Patty Play Pal and recorder and totally overwhelmed that Santa had visited us. I'll never forget that moment of pure surprise and joy. Kids who have christmas all the time may lose that feeling, but I still remember the thrill.
