When I was little, and up until the time I got married, we didn't take a lot of vacations - unless you count going to our church conventions. For as long as I can remember we always went to Columbus, Ga for Christmas to be with our aunts, uncles and cousins. Most of our Christmas Eves were spent at my Aunt Betty's house, which was always so much fun because our cousins were the same age as my sister and I.
This is a tidbit of what I have stored in my memory bank - my sister might have some different memories than I do. The house was full of the most beautiful decorations I thought I had ever seen, and there were always wonderful smells coming from her kitchen. My family loved to eat and we always had more food on the table than what we could possibly devour at one time - now I know you cook more than you need so you don't have to stay in the kitchen 24/7 while your company is there.
The time around the dinning room table was where we would catch up on all the news of the family - and that's also where I had my first cup of coffee - actually it mostly cream and sugar. I remember that my Aunt Betty always made me feel like I was so special.
Christmas Eve we went to bed early because Santa couldn't come until we were sound asleep - we always got up before daylight on Christmas morning to open presents. Even if the kids were still asleep they woke us up to see what Santa had left us under the tree.
As we came out of the hall into the living room, my Uncle Lonnie was always there with the movie camera - you know the one with the glaring lights that would blind you if you looked straight at it - making sure he captured our first ohhs and ahhs as we laid eyes on our treasures.
This Little Golden Book brings back all those memories whenever I look at the pictures. Oh, for life to be that sweet and simple again. Now it's days filled with shopping and cooking, cleaning and cooking, and cooking, and cooking.....
As you look through this sweet notebook I hope it causes you to remember all the good times in your childhood. Be sure to take the time this year to make wonderful memories with your little ones so they will have a file of great memories they can reflect on years from now. I hope this little book helps you do just that.
Thanks for reading,

"Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house...." We all know the story well.
This listing is for a once loved Little Golden Book titled "The Night Before Christmas" Storybook that has been upcycled to a notebook. I remember when my children were very young I always had to have writing paper or a book with us when we went to church to keep them quiet and their little minds occupied. A lot of times they would write on the pages of the books and in no time you couldn't make out the words in the story.
I turn children's best loved storybooks into little notebooks where they can draw and color and write and still keep the pages of the stories fresh for the next reader. In this upcycled Little Golden Book Notebook I've included the full story along with a colorful ribbon bookmark, 30 sheets of white blank paper, 10 sheets of writing paper, and 10 sheets of tracing paper just for your little one's creative side.
The measurements of this notebook is 8 X 6 3/4 inches.
