Flash Back Friday - Christmas

Clovis, Cailf
As I share more memories of Christmas past. I came across this picture. I didn't even remember this picture. But I do say I am looking pretty sassy. As you can see in the picture we had a good sized stone fireplace, like many we would hang our stockings up on it each year. What you can't see is in the middle of the fireplace is some of the stones opened up leaving a gap. Dad would make these huge fires, which I loved!! We always had the glow of a fire going. One year my stocking caught fire, so instead of ripping it down and stamping the fire out, my Dad grabbed the whole stocking and tossed it into the fire and it burned. I was devastated!! It was blue (my favorite color), with a print of poinsettias and an angel on it. It was gone!! Never did I see a similar stocking again.

Hey, I didn't realize you guys used to live in Clovis! My high school choir (from Salt Lake - actually, Granger) took a tour of So Cal and stayed with a bunch of Church members from Clovis. Would've been the late '70s or so. You're probably too young to remember, but it was one of my favorite parts of the trip.
