Roll'em Up!

We had our Christmas Dinner at my Grandmother's this weekend. We don't buy gifts anymore. For the last 8 years, we have started saving our change throughout the year, and then instead of unwrapping gifts, we roll up coins.

Each year a different family member gets to select an organization or individual in need, who will receive the money. This year, my cousin has selected a friend who is paying for his cancer treatment.
Even in these hard economic times, we were well over $1000 this year.
No one misses the gifts.

It is fun to get together with my cousins. We are more like siblings.
We eat too much.
We act silly.

We are so blessed.

Family is what is important.
