I am excited about this weeks Fives(I know I saw this every week)!!
The topic this week
Ok, here we go...
1. The neighbor painted this for me a few years ago. I wanted to give my Granny something that was personal the Christmas after my Pap-Paw passed away and I knew this would be perfect! My family has added a few members since then but this platter to me represents that the 5 of us and that together we made it thru a very hard time. We pulled together, leaned on each other and we made it.
As you can see my granny is holding a folded flag to represent my Pap-Paw.
Pap-Paw I miss you dearly...
2. Every year my Granny gives me a snow globe to add to my collection and I love it!
I know that I will cherish them forever!
3. Every year my Dad gives me a Y membership and he has no idea how much I appreciate that!
4. I will never forget it!
Everyday for a year I BEGGED my Mom for Kirsten the American girl doll. I mean it became an obsession! I know that I had to have drove her crazy about that doll! All my friends had one and I HAD to have her!
I came into the den on Christmas morning and there she was in all of her glory!
I went Banana's!
She was perfect!
I think I thanked my Mom(Santa) a MILLION times!
My Pap-Paw had made her a crib and a little closet- it truly was one of my favorite Christmases and I still have her and all of her furniture!
My Pap-Paw was not a shopper, we actually joked about it because he really hated it! Every year he would get my Granny a few big items and he would be so proud of himself. Everything he bought or picked out had a meaning or a use but you know that he picked things out from his heart. I just moved into my first apartment and I had the cute little Pottery bar ladybug shower curtain. My Granny and Pap-Paw had come over to eat Christmas Eve dinner at my apartment and he handed me this hand painted ladybug rock. It wasnt wrapped but he said I saw this and I thought of you so I wanted to get it for you. Now it sits on my shelf and every time I look at it I think of him and my heart swells because I know that he bought that for me from his heart.
