Castles and Victorian Houses

By Paige Larkin Carpenter, December 23, 2001

I'm so glad you shared that story. I was only three or so the last time I saw Dad, and I have only the faintest memories of him. After reading your reminiscence of his Christmas presents I brought the subject to my mother and sister. They vividly recall presents wrapped as castles or Victorian houses. My sister, Kelli, also told me about the Halloween costumes he used to make for them--complete to the smallest details and guaranteed to win any contest entered.

Neat stuff. Thanks.
