12 Days of Christmas Blog Challenge: Day 3

Thursday, November 25, 2010
I'm late for today's challenge - but I'm only on my phone bc we are out of town so typing out long posts take a little longer than normal and I haven't had a whole lot of free time!!

As a kid I remember on year my parents bought me a stereo with my first CD player when they came out - I think I was in the 7th grade (now don't go doing the math to figure how old hat makes me)!! I remember being soooo excited about that stereo. And it had a cute, tiny remote. Yes I called a remote cute! It was!! Ha ha! I wish I could find it, but. I know there is a picture of me somewhere when I opened the remote!! That was a very cool - exciting gif for me as a teenager.

The gifts that carry the most meaning though I think would have to be the family gifts that my Grannie has passed down through the years. One year I got a chip/dip set made of blue glass that belonged to my grandparents when they first got married - and that was in the 1930's!! I don't just set it up on a shelf either! I used it quite often. If I were at home I'd take a picture to share! Maybe when we get home I'll take some pics & do a post about these gifts from Grannie.

My PawPaw died when I was 7 and I was vey close to him. I love these gifts bc they make me feel a little more connected to them when they were young - like they are a glimpse into my grandparents' life from the early years!!
