One Magical Christmas Eve Night

One Magical Christmas Eve Night
6 x 6, oil
~A Gift~
Granny is one of the main reasons that I love Christmas Eve night. She made it magical. Every year Granny would wait on me to come and help her put up her tree. We'd listen to Perry Como and Bing Crosby on her record player... and I still listen to them every Christmas. This painting is from another old photo from a Christmas Eve several years ago... Paw Paw would sit in his recliner and Granny in her rocking chair next to him... with piles of presents for them to open. It was soooooooo much fun. No matter what she opened, it's exactly what she wanted. One year I gave her a Butterfinger candy bar, and she acted like it was pure gold.
