Pink Saturday...Snow

Happy Pink Saturday!!! Be sure to stop by How Sweet the Sound to check out all the links for Pink Saturday & say Hi to Beverly, our lovely host.

Look what we woke up to this morning in East Tennessee!!!
This is Sheba's first snow & she was very excited!!

The flash caught the snowflakes just right as they were coming down & some of them look HUGE.
This week we are supposed to be sharing one of our childhood memories about a special holiday....the one that keeps coming to mind for me is the first Christmas that my Mom, my little brother & I spent in California. We were thousands of miles from all our relatives and on a very small budget. We had a little tree in our apartment, but it was so warm & nice (not what we were used to for Christmas weather since we had moved from New Jersey the previous March) that my Mom decided we would go to my brother's favorite park to open our Christmas presents under the pine trees on the nice GREEN grass. I wore shorts & sandals and my Mom took pictures to send to our relatives.

What's your favorite holiday memory?

Thanks for the memory...

Sheba looks like she is a little shocked about the snow☺

It was a blessing for you to make my morning so much fun. Hoping that you and those you care about spend a wonderful weekend making memories that will last a lifetime☺

I think that Christmas is a memory that will last a lifetime. I think it's wonderful that you were in the park on a beautiful day. Our son in law is from Chile and they go to the beach every year on Christmas, that was a new one for me. I love your story, it's perfect, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Happy Pink Saturday, Denise. I know you all must have enjoyed the snow.

Your memory makes me smile at your mother trying to make Christmas special for all of you.
