Before she got cancer, it was a big deal with us. She and Gloria would come over on Christmas Eve and I'd cook a huge meal with a Honeybaked Ham. I'd decorate (still do) and set a festive table.
In 2009 we had a rare (for Texas) Christmas Eve snow. That was the best Christmas Eve ever!
Christmas 2010 was the last one where she was healthy. The difference was unbelievable.
Last year - 2012
She's been gone nearly 3 months and I find myself missing her at odd moments.
