Christmas Memories

All around me I see the world getting ready for Christmas.  Light are twinkling and trees and bought.  Ornaments are being hung and Mom is hunting for the perfect tablecloth for Christmas dinner.  The memories are being shared of Christmas’ past.  I remember the time I spent with my family.  I remember the Kuchos we used to do every year when I was small.  Kuchos is a traditional Lithuanian Christmas, done on Christmas Eve to celebrate the One Who Is To Come ((pretty cool right?))  The biggest memory I have ((next to Kuchos)) is Christmas 1991.  It was the first Christmas since Alex had gone home and we did not want to celebrate at all.  Literally, we stood the tree up and then proceeded to throw ornaments at the tree and where they landed is where they stayed.  This year, we now have two empty seats at our table and around our tree and once again Mommy and I would much rather tuck ourselves away and throw ornaments once more.  But dutifully, we will smile and try to spread cheer and the tree will go and the memories will be made for my boys and that is the most precious gift I could ever ask for…is that my boys are happy and are making memories ♥
