My mother and sister (who both have gone on to be with the Lord years ago) loved to decorate and bring on the Christmas spirit. This particular Christmas day in 1974, my mother, sister and I lived in an upper apartment in Cedar Rapids. Gazing at our balcony from outside you would see a stuffed Santa Claus my sister made. I snapped a photo of her goofing around and posing with him outside. Oh what fun! She was an absolute blast.
We opened gifts that morning and boy was I excited. One of my presents was Rock Em Sock Em Robots (which I still have to this day). My sister and I had a riot playing with this toy, trying to knock each other's head off. Better than the real thing right? 😊
The food was always amazing. Get my mom and sister in kitchen and they performed magic that must have come from the North Pole. Always a wonderful feast.
You never know when God will call your loved ones home. Enjoy celebrating with your family while you can.
Merry Christmas to you all, and May God Bless EVERYONE! 🙏❤️
