I was almost 12 when this picture was taken at Papaw and Mamaw's house on CHRISTmas Eve, 1966. That's me on the left holding my cousin. The two other girls are his sisters.....and the handsome young man on the lower right is my baby brother. What sweet memories this brings to mind. I loved my Papaw and Mamaw so much and the meals she cooked for us at CHRISTmas were simply awesome!!!
Their CHRISTmas tree was always a cedar tree that Papaw would cut and then Mamaw would mix up "warshing powder and water" to make a thick paste to "flock" the limbs. I remember the smell to this day when one of those big old light bulbs would get the powder hot!!! I was blessed with some of those old ornaments when Mamaw passed away!!!
Sweet, sweet memories that I ponder in my heart!!!
But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
