Down Christmas memory lane

Me and the nephew. Look at those eyes and cheeks! And that tongue!
Me and the nieces. They are getting so big!  They are beautiful inside and out.

Melodic Bread, recently invited me to participate in a series about Christmas memories. I have so many Christmas memories that it was hard to pick just one! So, I went with three rather unique ones in the blog. (Read the blog I wrote on Melodic Bread by clicking here)

My memories don’t stop there, however. I remember going to grandma’s house on the 23rd and spending the night and all day the 24th over there then spending the 25th with my mom’s side of the family. I remember my mom’s brisket (which she still makes) every Christmas. My aunt Jimmie’s fudge pretty much makes it Christmas. When I was a little kid, we did the Advent Calendar.

This Christmas that just passed was filled with many new memories that I will always cherish. We have new kids in our family with my 20-month old nieces and 2-month old nephew. We also have what I think is going to be a new tradition in the family where we spend the 24th with immediate family (my parents, husband, brother, sister-in-law, the nieces/nephew) and each make our own individual pizza. That’s so much fun! It’s a great way to be creative and have food that isn’t the normal “Christmas food.”
