One of my favorite memories that comes to mind is when I was probably around 7 or 8 years old. My parents were still married at the time and we had ALOT of family friends. We weren't even related to them, but we called them our aunties and uncles. We were always going to "family" parties! I just remember all of us getting together for Christmas and there being TONS of presents for every family, and of course, tons of food. There was never any drama. The adults would have their conversations going on while us kids would just play together. Unfortunately, after my parents divorce when I was ten, it just wasn't the same. There were no more "family" parties to attend. I can imagine that it would just be too awkward/different for everybody. Okay..now this is turning into a downer! Anyway, I just remember that time in my life being one of the happiest of my childhood. And you know I don't even remember a specific gift, I just remember the wonderful times spent as a family. I just pray that my children look back and have fond Christmas memories with our family and friends, too!
