My mom (thank God) is a sensible, caring woman so she called me a few weeks before Easter of 2009 for a "come to Jesus" meeting. She told me that she was happy that I wanted to take her feelings into account, but I needed to work more on bonding with my new family. And that included Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter dinners. You can't continue traditions or make new ones if no one is around. I'm not going to say this is a seamless process but we're working on it.
I love this cute, printable poster!
Chic flowers made from paper bags! Yes...paper bags.
We're spending Thanksgiving Day at my mother-in-law's house this year, so that means we'll be singing karaoke.
Does your family have a fun tradition or would you like to start a new one?
