Every year the holidays meant my mom would be cooking! Her rolls were legendary, but my favorite was her peanut butter fudge. Mom's favorite color was green and now that I am finished with all the challenges, I may need to go make fudge! Inside the card I will put Mom's fudge recipe. My dad is sending it! I am so excited!

Marilyn, what a sweet card... and an even sweeter memory! I love the idea of tucking an heirloom recipe into your card. It is sure to be loved (and sounds yummy!)

I remember celebrating Christmas by going to church,singing songs and celebrating the real meaning of Christmas.
We were always excited to see our gifts under the tree on Christmas day and having a big Christmas dinner.
I know my parents weren't wealthy but we always seemed to get what we asked for on Christmas.
So here is my card with a memory of a rocking horse and being together with loved ones.

I too have enjoyed reading everyone's stories.
Here is mine: When I was growing up my grandmother had an aluminum Christmas tree that she decorated with pink ornaments. She also had a color wheel that would shine different colors of light on the tree. Everyone use to give Grandma a hard time about her tree, but she loved it and would put it up every year. I think that my grandfather hated it as much as she loved it.

Linda Jo, I love your rocking horse card and the fond memories you have of an easier time.

Koren, I love your story about the aluminum tree! They were all the rage back in the 60's or 70's. How about the ceramic trees with the lights too. Very nice tribute to Grandma!

My memory and tradition was that we were allowed to open our stockings when we got up as long as we let Mom & Dad sleep to a reasonable time. There were lots of years us kids were up at 4am going through our stockings. Always got stamps, socks and underwear but there were always some goodies in there too. Then we would eat Christmas bread and open the gifts under the tree. We still sort of expect Christmas bread when we go to Mom's for the holidays but the stockings have disappeared.

Still having photobucket issues. I've edited and saved but doesn't seem to have taken it. You'll just have to use your imagination!
