Christmas Memories

Happy Birthday to my daddy! Posted by Hello

Dad always made holidays much more special with his flair for cooking, his chipper attitude and most of all, him being just a bit of a kid himself. Today is December 21, it would have been Dad's 74th birthday. Every Christmas on Dad's birthday, we would all get together to decorate the tree. Pam, Kathy and I would bake and we would buy eggnog and sing Christmas songs. Steve, Billy and I would go and get the tree. (Steve used to be very picky about his tree.) Right as we were about to take a family photo in front of the tree, it would always fall over from Mom having decorated only one side. This is my favorite family tradition and one that we are keeping still.
