Today is day 9 of the Cross Country Christmas Blog Hop. We have been zig-zagging across the country, bringing you projects and Christmas stories from all over! Today is no exception. Sherri from This and That Pattern Co is our featured designer of the day. Be sure to visit her blog to see the project that she is sharing with all the hoppers.
Our theme for today is a kid story. Each day the designers have been digging deep to come up with fun memories to share. Every day I have been able to think of something, but today I am at a loss. I think the main reason is that I don’t have kids of my own. I’m sure the Mom’s on the blog hop will have plenty of fun stories to share! In fact, they probably are having a hard time picking something. We can also share a kid story from our childhood. Again, I have been wracking my brain for something, and I can’t remember any kid/Christmas stories from my childhood. (Have I mentioned that I have a bad memory?) The only thing I do remember (that I haven’t already shared), is that I loved to decorate the Christmas tree. Dad would bring the boxes up from the storage room in the basement and I would set up the tree, add the lights and arrange the ornaments. I wonder how I did? Sometimes kids put all the ornaments in one spot or only on the bottom. I do remember hiding the ugly ones in the back of the tree. I’ll have to ask Mom if she rearranged all the ornaments after I went to bed. I remember it kept me happy and busy all day! It’s a good memory, but certainly not an interesting story. I’m just hoping the other gals on the hop can help bail me out with some interesting stories of their own!
