Merry Christmas my friends in Blogland! Today's quizz question. What is your favorite Christmas memory? Sarah said something that reminded me mine. When I was about 15 we woke up on Christmas morning to no presents under the tree! Instead of putting our gifts under the tree our parents decided to have a scavenger hunt for our gifts. Each of us had an envelope pinned to the tree. In each envelope was a little poem with a clue to where our presents were located. Mine was in my Uncle Floyd's closet at my Granny's house. I found it pretty much right away but didn't realize it was mine cause it was an electric guitar and amp and my uncle plays guitar so I just figured it was his. LOL! And the rest of my gift was guitar lessons. I'll always remember that Christmas. Not because of the gift (even though it was a really cool one!) but because of the scavenger hunt to find them. It's funny too that I can't remember my poem but I can remember my younger brothers. He got a go-cart or dune buggy. Can't remember which as he had both at some time when we were growing up. Anyway, we had a neighbor who had his farm shop just down the road. The poem read, "Brakes stuck. Couldn't stop. Left it in, Mr. Leo's shop."
