The kids love watching the nativity run in circles and seeing the patterns the blades make on the ceiling. We sang a few songs together and the kids sang a couple for us. I love family time during the holidays.

Lunch was always frozen corn and hot dogs, that was what we always requested. I am sure my mom loved the cookies party just as much as my siblings and I did because she got to stay home by herself.
Lois, a widow was always more of a grandma than a neighbor to our family. We were constantly at her house, getting her mail for a piece of candy, movie nights, craft projects and a lot of visits.
The cookie parties were legendary, we were there for hours, decorating the cookies and eating the decorations.
Last year Michele started a cookie party tradition for our family. We all brought two dozen cookies to trade and have judged and then we decorated sugar cookies. Jane and I had a great time.
