Christmas Time - Clovis, Calif
I love looking at old photos; there are time capsules, moments captured in time. Christmas has always been a magical time for me. My Mom would set the scene, the glow of the fireplace, the twinkling of the Christmas lights on the tree, I would lay under the tree and would listen to the bulbs, make a "dink, dink" noise as the bulbs would twinkle on and off. The colors would reflect off the tinsel, it was beautiful. We had wonderful memories of going down Christmas Tree Lane, going to Cobb Tree Farm to cut a tree, having a hayride and eating fresh pistachios by the fire. Christmas music would play all day and night, It was a big part of adding to the Memories. We would go the local True Value Hardware Store to pick up the new Christmas album for that year.
