Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post about their favorite gifts. As I was reading the comments, memories of many of those same gifts came flooding back to me. Some were gifts that I got, some were gifts that siblings or cousins got. Either way, it brought back lots of fun memories.
Today the topic of the day is a Christmas Tree story.
I have been wracking my brain for a good tree story and there is only one that I can think of. I’ve been trying to come up with another one to share, because if I tell this one, it will embarrass one of my siblings. But, since I can’t come up with anything else, I will tell the story and leave out the name of which sibling to protect the guilty party.
Our Christmas tree was always set up in the far corner of the living room. One day my Grandma Visser was over and she and my mom were sitting in the living room visiting. They heard a rustling noise coming from behind the Christmas tree, followed by the sound of tinkling ornaments as the tree crashed into the center of the living room. Behind the tree hid a certain little brother or sister of mine, with a red face and pained expression. Can you guess what my sibling was doing? What do little kids usually do when they hide? Did I mention this kid was still in diapers? I think you get the idea. There were ornaments and tinsel scattered across the living room, in addition to scaring the bejeebers out of Grandma. After getting over being startled, Mom and Grandma had a good laugh over it. I still think it’s funny too – So any guesses who it was? You have a fifty/fifty chance at guessing . . . . .
