The thought came and went too quick for me to catch it. It was two weeks ago when lots of Thanksgiving plans were crowding my mind. By the time I talked with Dad after Thanksgiving, all I could remember was that I had a question for him, but I couldn't remember what it was.
The desire to try and track down the Christmas album we treasured as kids did resurface, though, once the holiday tunes were wafting through the air full force.
I didn't have much to go on: just I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus in a voice not easily forgotten and a faint memory of a story about an inspiring conversation between a Christmas tree and Santa.
The unforgettable voice turned out to be the 13-year-old Jimmy Boyd who originally made the song famous. The story was narrated by none other than Red Skelton. And, of course, this made me think of the wise men.
Now, I know you want to know how on earth that happened, so why don't you click on over to Laced With Grace today to find out. It's quite a trip down memory lane.
