2015 Christmas Music Marathon Day 3
There are a lot of things associated with Christmas. Good food, football games, holiday decorations, gift exchanges, etc. I've come to realize that the most important thing about Christmas is spending time with the family celebrating the birth of our Savior. Several years from now none of us will remember what we got or what we gave as gifts to one another, but we will remember spending time together and we will remember the family Christmas traditions. Our family has several traditions. At some point the grandcrew come over and spend a day baking cookies and other goodies. The food isn't nearly important as the fellowship. Memories are made and captured, to be shared for years to come. The image above was taken on Christmas Eve 2007, two years before my dad passed away. Our daughter and the four grandcrew are gathered around Papa Yogi. His real name was not Yogi, but it is a nickname that stuck. Christmas time will always be special around our house.
