Every Christmas eve, we have chili, Brandy Alexander's and my whole family gets together to trim the tree. When my parents were still married, my dad's family would come over, too, and there would be lots of celebrating. It's one of my most special memories from my youth. What's even more special is that it's all been happening in the SAME house year after year. But, this year, Oklahoma had a REALLY white Christmas. The Blizzard of 2009 really put a damper on our Christmas Eve festivities.
