It’s that time of year when the chill in the frosty air brings us indoors to hunker down with thick comforters and mugs of steaming hot chocolate overflowing with fluffy marshmallows. When holiday music and movies become the soundtrack to our everyday home lives. When we gather ‘round the fire for company, drink, food and love. When we are celebrating and remembering those we treasure and hold near and dear. When the real meaning of the season is family – by our DNA or by our heart. When we reflect and give thanks for all we have. In a nutshell, unconditional love.
I’d like to welcome Elizabeth Lynn Casey to share the beauty of the season with us.
Favorite Holiday tradition?
For me, it’s picking an ornament for each child that depicts something about them from that year of their life, knowing it will be a piece of their history they can share with their own children one day.
Favorite childhood toy?
My favorite "toy" from the time I was about four or five was my baby doll, Jody. That doll went everywhere with me. Whenever it was humanly possible for us to wear matching clothes, we did. In fact, there aren’t many pictures of me during the “Jody years” that don’t have her in my arms! I still have her, but she has an almost “horror movie” look about her these days so I’d prefer to remember her the way she was…
Favorite childhood game?
Since you asked, I might as well tell you… I was a Perfection champ! I could fit those shapes into their spots and still have 15 seconds on the clock! J
Snow ball fight or making snow families?
I think I have to say making snow families. Wimpy, I know.
Sleigh rides, sledding or skiing?
That’s easy. I love to go sledding. And my kids, they love to watch me sled because I’m always squealing all the way down the hill.
Favorite Holiday song?
I have three, each with their own specific reason.
