Christmas Day at our house was more than just Santa Claus and presents, it was the love that still remains today

Here are me and my sister, Baby Donna with Santa in 1949.

Unk ILe looked like a million bucks as he stepped out of his beautiful white Cadillac convertible with red leather seats and whitewall tires that Christmas in 1959.  I remember Nana and I waiting with baited breath for him to pull up and park in front of our house at exactly 5:00 

          There was a plenty of laughter and hugs as he
 handed them all the goodies he'd brought for us. 
          Gifts from movie stars, magazine executives, studio executives
 and advertising executives.

      This was exciting for sure, but not as exciting as when
 he pulled out our Christmas envelopes with a crisp $10.00
 bill in it for us kids. I   sang Bali High  from  South Pacific
and danced a hula because he loved the Hawaiian Islands.
 My ten year old sister Donna dressed up like Marilyn Monroe with a pink
 wig, long cigarette holder, long  false eyelashes and did a song and dance routine toBobby Darin'sMack The Knife while Unk Ile cracked up laughing 
and
 slapping his knee.  When the laughter calmed down, my little 4 year old
 sister Billee got up and did an adorable little dance routine for him while
 he watched in amazement as Nana
      so proudly beamed with delight.  I will never forget
 that Christmas and will forever miss those
      wonderful old day's when we were all so young and Innocent and the
 magic was still so bright.
