December 9 - Grab Bag Author’s choice. Please post from a topic that helps you remember Christmases past!
My mom’s sister, aunt Dot, was also my godmother. Each year while I was still in elementary school, Aunt Dot would give me a Christmas present. She always picked things that made you think, use your hands, and create things like puzzles, Lincoln Logs, and an Erector Set. Along with eventually working with my dad in his construction business, I think she helped inspire me into becoming an engineer.
What I remember the most as a kid is waking up on Christmas morning and the tree would be up and lots of presents under the tree. My dad would always have his movie and 35mm cameras going with bright lights on the movie camera blinding everyone. You eventually got a headache because of the bright lights.
Now if I can just find that film and convert it to DVD...
