Thanks Gayle. Coming from a large family herself, Mom always enjoyed Grandpop’s Christmas celebrations with all the family around the table in his and Grandmom’s living room. Remember how long the table was? Then dinner happen all day long as extended family would come all day long whenever they could after their own Christmas dinners. Thank you for writing. Love, Pattie
