I have just been holding my while she cried. Both of our parents are gone and we really miss them, especially at this time of the year. Every Thanksgiving we used to visit my parents in Las Vegas then at Christmas we would spend the day with her parents and the extended family. I would roast a turkey and bring it over and other people in the family would bring their specialities. We would exchange gifts, eat and play silly board games and just be loud in general until late at night. It was always a great time. Her parents were the glue for the family, all of us in the family always knew where we were going during the holidays without question. I know some of you have your own stories about the holidays maybe good maybe awful, feel free to share them. I would enjoy hearing them. For us, we didn't realize just how good things were during that time, those days are gone and not coming back. Now, we are trying to establish new traditions with our family and people are looking to us to do that. Kinda scary but good. We still have fun. Happy Holidays and/or Merry Christmas to you all.
