My Most Cherished Christmas Gift This Year

Christmas was full of wonder this year with thoughtful gifts from all the family. But when my Mom handed me a box full of photos it was as if time had stopped. I couldn't stop thumbing through the photos, recalling moments and memories from my childhood. It was a gift she gave both to my sister and I as she often had doubles printed when she sent her film to be developed. How grateful I am that she did this for us!

This gift will be long-treasured by me and my children. I can't wait to share these amazing memories with my own kids.

    Taking the family group pictures every time we are all there with no arguement. The unexpected death of my brother in law in 2016 showed everyone how important it was as it was the last picture of him. So when I ask for a picture no one rolls their eyes, they just get in a group and we take the pictures

    1. I love that, Dorina! I'm so glad they get the importance but I'm heartbroken to hear about your brother's passing.

  2. Jen, I feel the same way about family photos. Right after my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer she shipped me a large photo album of original photos that dated back to the day my great-grandmother came to Ellis Island. I didn't realize that it contained originals that no one else in the family had until my dad came to visit later that year and asked me where I'd gotten it. He told me that there were photos in there that no else in the family had copies of and that he hadn't seen some of them since he was a boy. I realized that I had to remedy that. I set out to restore many of the photos so I bought a nice copier/printer and made copies of all of the photos and gave them out as Christmas gifts that next year. It's one of the best gifts I've ever gotten and then had a chance to gift back to everyone else!

  3. The best Christmas gift I received was my dog a Jack Russell I named her Tormenta. Since I remembered I always wanted a dog but my mom told me we can't have a dog for the space, because she was allergic. But many years passed me wanting a dog until we moved to a bigger house and my mom and dad gave the surprise after 18 years that I was getting a dog and Tormenta came to our house with Rayo lol now we have 2 dogs. That's my favorite Christmas gift of all time.
