Christmas Food...Hungry?

 The punch was ready when our family started to arrive...
 Pasta salad done...
 Eggs finished....a dash of cheese
Lots of goodies...
 another salad...

 And family...
 More family...

 The grandparents....(in the back)
 Was good to have family over for the afternoon. This is my dh side of the family...somehow I missed getting any pictures of their 3 sons but believe me they were there! Now, I am almost ready for Christmas. This week is about finishing up, Christmas choir, Christmas play and finally Christmas day. It will not be the same this year. My heart is not in Christmas this year but now is all we have and I am trying to enjoy the season with my children....but I am missing Mom....

All that looks so good. I think all the first holidays are the worse, every time one came around, it brought new pain and grief. But even though I did not believe it, time does help. It doesn't eradicate it, but the memories become more sweet, and the pain less sharp.. God Bless You.
