Christmas always makes me think of being a kid and the excitement of the big morning. We always went to church on Christmas Eve for the candle lighting service, which is the most beautiful thing. Sometimes we’d open presents on Christmas Eve because we usually drove to see my aunt, uncle and cousins for Christmas.
I was a kid I wanted an Easy Bake Oven. Another year Cabbage Patch Dolls were
the rage. I got one in the summer, which was a preemie, and then I
ended up getting two at Christmas. My parents had ordered them months before
because the stores would sell out almost immediately.

But I think my favorite present ever was a huge, stuffed bunny that I got when I was about five. I think it was over 5-ft. tall. I loved that thing! It was yellow and soft and I could sit on its lap.
These days it’s harder to figure out what I want. What I really want is to be a world-famous author and make my total living off my writing, lol. I’m not sure anyone can give me that present, not even Santa Claus.
What are your favorite Christmas memories from growing up? Was there a special present you really wanted as a kid? What do you want these days?
