My favorite Christmas in 1992 

My favorite Christmas was in 1992. I got a Nintendo game system and games like Super Mario Bros. and Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out. My other favorite game was Duck Hunt, a shooting game. I remember when I was a little girl, I stayed with my grandmom Flossie and grandpa Bill. My mom Cookie was working and was a single mom who tried to always pull the best Christmas off, hustling up money so I could have a good Christmas and always have what I wanted as a child. She was a hustler and always made sure I had clothes on my back and shoes on my feet. 

Grandmom Flossie would cook up a big Christmas dinner. We had so many people eating at our house for Christmas and I got to spend time with my family and big brother. Cousin Dashiel would spend time with our grandmom and grandpa, and the rest of the family. We all get together for the Christmas holidays and have a fun time. I miss my grandmom Flossie, she was an amazing woman, and grandpa Bill was my “Farmer Bill Brown.” I wish they were still here to help with my boys, and the things I go through in life, good and bad. But I know they smile down on me and my family, especially my boys
