Day 9: 12 Days of #HopeforHeidiAllen
My aunt and uncle's home was a two bedroom with a full basement. I tried to decide my favorite place to play but can't.
The bedrooms were great because my cousin Mark's childhood bedroom was "so cool". I remember we jumped on the bed a little too much one year and broke it, lol. Oh goodness, the adults just laughed and fixed the bed. It was a joy-filled time and no one was upset.
When we were old enough, we were allowed to play in the basement. My Uncle Buss had bolts of upholstery from his business and work tables. In today's verbage, some would say he had a "man cave" down there on the other half of the room. We'd play hide-n-seek downstairs and Heidi was so little, she'd hide between the bolts and we never found her.
The years with snow on the ground, we arrived in our best Christmas outfit with a bag filled with our "outdoor clothes" and after we ate, we'd play outside until our snow pants soaked through or our lips were blue. The boys would play football in the snow some years, they didn't like to let us play. No matter what we were doing, we were all together and making memories.
We didn't have the luxury of a telephone/camera/computer in our purse or back pocket so the photos aren't in surplus yet the memories in my brain overflow.
What memories of your childhood holidays do you have? When you compare Christmas of today to yester-year, what makes you smile and why?
