My mom used to tell me that the time before dusk was the magic hour, when fairies would come out and dance and play.  I loved when she told me those stories.

Decorating our Christmas tree.

Things weren't always so great when I was growing up. My parents did a lot of stupid things and made a lot of mistakes. However, they did always made sure that Christmas was special for us.

I LOVED to decorate our Christmas tree. We always bought a gigantic, real tree. Going to the tree lot to pick it out was half the fun. It seemed like it was always dark, and they always had those little white lights strung up around the lot. When we got it home, we would put the tree in the stand and the branches would need to drop for a day before we could decorate it. My parents made a big deal out of the decorating. We would make pop-corn (real popcorn, we didn't have microwave popcorn back then), play Christmas records (yes, I said records. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer was my fav), and drink cocoa or Soda Pop. My Dad would bring out a step-ladder so that my brother and I could put ornaments on the higher branches (this was so cool to me). We would set up our cardboard fire place, too (again, major coolness to me). It seems like I would spend hours just lying under the tree, looking up through the branches at all the lights and sparkling ornaments.

*sigh* I would like to go back and feel Christmas again as only a child can. I can get glimpses through the eyes of my children, though, and that is one of the blessings of being a parent.

In 5th grade, I caught a big grasshopper and threw it into the girl's restroom, and got nailed bigtime by my teacher *grin*

Heeheh! One of my best friends about that time (5th grade) was  tomboy.  We'd trudge though the corn fields and play along a stream, until the farmer would come screaming at us while driving his old tractor, lol!  Bah! but he had such a great play ground!  Kids these days, bah, they just want to play video games.   :-/
Is the art of life, living somewhere in between?

One favourite memory of mine is my first day of Kindergarten. I can remember what I was wearing and everything. I wore a red shirtand a denim jumper dress. My teacher was "Miss Bush", and I also met a kid named Chris Burke who I developed a crush on but he didn't want any part of that! Ahhh simple times they were . . .
