It's "All About Me" this week at Lasting Memories.We want to see a layout that tells us something about you! This was a fitting theme this week because I have been working on a childhood memories album over at Bog Picture Classes Big Idea Festival.
So I chose to tell about some of my childhood Christmas memories on this layout. I grew up in Bay City, Michigan the home of Nat Doan. Nat was known around the world as THE Santa Claus trainer. He taught thousands on how to be Santa. And he happened to be close friends of my grandma on my mother's side and his boys were close friends of my Dad's brothers.They even served in Vietnam together!
Every year Santa and his wife would come to our home for a visit to find out what we wanted for Christmas. And his conversations were filled with tidbits about family members. So there was no doubt in the world that the REAL Santa came to visit because he would also know very detailed information about our childhood comings and goings! LOL
Journal: Every year Santa would come to our home in Early December. He always brought candy canesand a small gift. I usually received a book such as Little Women, Trixie Belden or Nancy Drew. As we got older we were able to predict which night Santa was coming because Grandma O would show up all dressed up & we didn't have to change our clothes when we got home from school.
Looking forward to learning all about you!
