Here is my response to Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Memories – http://esengasvoice.wordpress.com/2013/12/08/eses-weekly-shoot-quote-challenge-memories/.

First is a photo of my Mother’s lighted hanging angel display (they are all different colors) and then several photos of her handmade ornaments.  The ornaments made it from her Christmas tree to mine some 30-40 years later.  The birds are not handmade, but they are all from her tree, too.  My memories of Christmas are deeply entwined with memories of my Mother.  She made every Christmas magical to a shy, young girl.
