Friday Five - Christmases Past

Today's Friday Five invites us to share five holiday memories we have, so here goes!

My first bike - I was five years old and it was the only year we didn't go to my grandparents' house in Montgomery (because I was getting the bike!) so everyone came to see us! It was really great. That was also the year I got my Angelina Ballerina books and I think I spent more of that Christmas morning with the books than the bike!

The Nutcracker - I loved ballet as a little girl but I only ever got to go see the Nutcracker once. I guess I was about eight when I finally got to go with my mom, my best friend Tyler, and her mom. It was so much fun and I still would love to go see it again sometime!

December 21, 2007 - Jeff and I met on Dec. 26, 2006, so Christmas 2007 was our first together, even though we had been together practically one whole year. He arranged a secret date for me that night so we could celebrate together. We opened presents together, went to a lovely dinner, and went to see the Christmas lights at the zoo. Then he took me up to Vulcan over-looking the city (and where we'd gone on our first date) and he proposed to me with a beautiful Christmas ornament!

Christmas Eve Pizza - My mom always had to work on Christmas Eve, so after we went to the early service at church, we stopped and got pizza on the way home to have for dinner. Then we'd all sit around and watch the Christmas Story marathon on TV!

Christmas lights - I love driving around looking at Christmas lights. Whether it was seeing how many members of the extended family we could cram into our mini-van when I was younger or simply having a "date" night with Jeff, I love them more and more every year!
