Family Fudge

One of my most favorite quotes is:

Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.  ~Author Unknown

This is such a very true statement!  Well when it comes to my family anyway!  The holidays are upon us and every year around this time the memories from childhood of our family gatherings come back to me!  It always fun and hilarious to sit here and go down memory lane!  

(one of the many Christmas's spent together)

But after going down memory lane I see my daughter and realize she'll never those memories like we did with the whole family packed in to a tiny house, with a ton a food and games and there was almost always a fight between someone but those are the things I miss about the holidays is our whole family together!

My kid will never have that all because of stupid petty arguments that have taken place since my grandma passed!  My aunts and uncles are grown adults and can't manage to get over the petty stuff and get along for the kids sake!  

Yeah I've done my best to make Alyssa's holidays as memorable and fun as possible but its just not the same!  

So I guess the whole point of this is even though you may fight and not always agree with your family love them and be there for them anyway!  You never when they won't be there!
