Christmas at my grandparents on my Dad's side, when my parents were still together. I remember playing with all of my cousins and the smells of Christmas lunch from scratch.

Yes, that is when we have my Mom's family Christmases (Mom's house & Grandmother's House). But, at my house, you have to wait until Christmas morning.

The ornaments that were on my mom's tree when I was growing up, as well as some additions of my own.
11. Snow! Love it or dread it?
Texas really doesn't have real snow. I like ice-days because I don't have to go to work. I do get to see snow in Colorado, when we make our family trip up there and I love it, but more than a week is a little much for me.
