    I remember one year when I was in Girl Scouts being the top seller in my troop. My mom had ordered a lot of cookies that year and when anyone we knew in the neighborhood ran out of cookies, they came to us for a box or two of cookies!

    Now they cost so much and they smaller, and I think they

    were better when we sold them. Tasted  like homemade.

    I think when I sold them there were around $2 per box. I was a Girl Scout in the early to mid 80s.

    I guess 2 differtent 'rememberances' from somewhat early childhood.

    Daddy was stationed in France from when I was 6 - 9 ('52-'55). When Colors were blown on base, we stood and sang the Star Spangled Banner as the the Flag was raised. We then said the Pledge and then 'sang' (badly) a different 'patriot song' (the song was decided daily by each of us on rotation), I always chose 'Grand Ole Flag'. I still love that song.

    Probably the 2 most cherished memories (also from our France times) are from Christmas. I was a bit of a spoiled brat - I/we had a huge Christmas tree that was electrically lit that was in front of the window facing the Promanade and I always wanted it on all the time. Long story perhaps shorter - the Nuns from the orphange saw it and asked our maid if they it would be possible to keep it on long enough to bring the kids to see it - of course! When Madame to told Mom, she immediately said we had to get get cookies and hot chocolate ready for them. The only way the Nuns would let them to have what we had ready for them was by assuring them that there was not way we would could ever drink or eat so much it would be wasted.

    We also went to some French friends house for a holiday meal where I saw the most beautiful Christmas trees I have ever seen - they were totally candle lit. I found candle holders years ago and still use them safely but do electically light also - some times on 1 tree, sometimes on different trees.

    Not exactly a childhood memory but I remember being the first of the kids in my family to have ever gone anywhere out of North America. In high school I got the chance to spend a week with other kids from my school in England. Loved it so much I didn't want to leave to come home!
