Christmas:Past and Present
Christmas has always been a big deal in my family. From the time I was born the whole family would gather at my grandparents house to celebrate.Every Christmas Eve we would all sit around the tree (and anywhere else we could,HUGE family) to open all our gifts.We would talk and laugh, sing carols and be happy. I would wake up on Christmas morning to the wonderful smells of turkey,cookies, and pies.My grandmother was the best cook in our entire family!We all waited impatiently to taste her Christmas dinner.It isn't the same without her. Now I go to my sister's and spend the holidays with the loves of my life.( My nieces and nephew) The looks on their faces when they open those packages-PRICELESS!Alot of things have changed in the last few years,but Christmas will always hold a special place in my heart!!!
