. . . is a tradition for many.
My family is no exception.
Except now, I'm the Grandma whose house is where everyone gathers for holidays.
And you know what? Even though I may grumble to myself about all of the work from time to time (shame on me!), I truly enjoy it! It just won't be the same when my children have homes large enough to fit us all and we start taking turns. That IS the plan for the future, right kids?
The years take their toll on those we hold dear. Absent loved ones are especially missed during the holidays.
We hold our old, sepia-colored memories close to our hearts.
And cherish the new memories we make each year.
Where do you hold your Christmas gatherings?
Are you heading 'over the meadow and through the woods, to Grandmother's house you go'?
