This year was even more special because of the book- put together by me - that we all received as our Family Christmas gift. It is full of funny, sweet, and extremely sentimental photos, thoughtful writing, and warm memories. I am going to try to find a way to post it on here so you can all see what I am talking about.....look for it in days to come.

When I think of Christmas, I don't think about presents, shopping, wrapping, food, yummy sweets, decorations or snow. I think about my family. I think about our Christmas Eve Alderman Family get-together. It's what I look most forward to. It's what I missed most while we lived in California, Colorado and Florida. Somehow, we all find a way to be there. AND, we always have a great time. Sure, there's always presents, good food, yummy sweets, a beautiful tree -but it's family that brings it all home for me.
