I am really missing my Mom


Of course, I miss her everyday. But holidays are the very hardest. She loved Thanksgiving and Christmas so much. Easter, too! Mom would have coordinating plates, cup and napkins. Her tables always looked so nice and festive.

She and dad would shop together for Christmas and then wrap all of the gifts at the dining room table. She bought the best gifts and made the most awesome stockings, ever. Opening stockings was always the highlight of Christmas morning.

Oh, how I miss talking to her everyday.

She was the BEST cook. We had home cooked meals every night, growing up.

The above picture is of her making her famous peanut butter fudge. That was her most requsted sweet. (the picture isn't the greatest, it's a pic of a pic). After they moved to Florida, mom would make batches of the fudge and ship it up here to us. Lesa, Chris and I all make the fudge for our families, but it just isn't quite as good!

I know how you feel I lost my dad almost 12 yrs ago and I so miss him more so during the holidays as he loved to cook and make big meals for us and loved to entertain!
