Learning to drive. My dad taught me to drive in the ice/snow as if there were an egg between my foot and the gas pedal that I didn't want to break. I can still hear his voice when I drive in the snow.
The Christmas Village. My mom and I set up her "Dickens Village" together every year. And my dad and I would go to the local "boutique" in Sunnyside to pick out a new shoppe. (Yes, there was a boutique in Sunnyside, which I am quite confident has since gone out of business. Anyone remember Hopfengarten Gallery in the Mini Mall?) This was my Christmas present to my mom for many years. When my parents moved, my mom let me keep the village. There are newer, updated villages out there now, but none top this one. This year's display:
Manheim Steamroller Christmas CD. This must've been one of the first CD's my mom bought. Ty doesn't care for it much, but it reminds me of growing up. I could listen to it year 'round.
Basketball Practice (never, ever canceled). We'd start our cars during the last water break of practice because they took at least that long to defrost.
