Have a Pink Plastic Christmas

I got a lot of cool gifts as a kid but the one that sticks out was this three-story Barbie condo.  My sister had the dream house but I wanted the condo with cool mod furniture and an elevator.  Either my mom or my dad perfectly captured my reaction.  I figured I must have done something right if Santa dug me that much! I think I might have cried, I was so overwhelmed.

This year I'd planned on getting my best friend's little girl clothes but at the last minute I was totally compelled to get her a Barbie convertible and a Barbie pool.  I found this photo yesterday in a folder of some scans my mother sent me and I realized why I had to go Barbie.  You never forget your favorite toy and the Christmas you got it.  I guess, to me, a part of Christmas will always will be plastic and pink.  And, I'm okay with that.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday.  I don't get mushy a lot but I want to say that I'm sincerely grateful for everyone who reads my blog.  Thanks for getting silly with me, you guys!

Love and Merry Merry and Snow and Joy to you all.
