Growing up I had a strong family. We had a lot of good times and endured some tough times too. The holidays bring all the memories back. This picture represents the good times we had. We spent the day at Aunt Betty's wonderful Berlin home. We played with our cousins, ate good food, and celebrated the Christmas season. Betty had eight children at the time. Her ninth child was born a few years later. We had so many good times with our cousins during those years and today we continue to share each others life events via Facebook and times when we're fortunate to get together.
