Our Traditions 2012

"During this time of the year my Oma spends special time with us.  Oma is German for grandmother. She lives in Illinois but leaves her home here and goes south for the cold, winter months.  She's what some people call a snowbird.  Last week she was with us and we celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas at the same time.  I loved it!  We decorated a little for each holiday, had a lot of delicious food, time together, and opened gifts.  I'll miss Oma when she's gone but I know she will be back again in the spring.  Do you know any snowbirds?"    ~Megan
