When I was a kid, we would go to one grandparents house for Christmas lunch and to the other for Christmas dinner. Then for many years it was just the five of us at Christmas dinner.
A little over ten years ago things began to change. My sister got married and had her first child. My brother met his wife and future daughter. Suddenly, Christmas changed for us. We now had little kids in the family again and the holiday joy of the little kids became a feature of our holidays once again. Now, I am an aunt to my niece and four nephews. From the preschooler to the teenager, our home is once again going to be full of children this Christmas.
There will be candy and toys and the love of our family to share the joyous Christmas season again!
Off to the Christmas Shopping!

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2011) that invite genealogists and others to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your memories on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
