The Christmas pickle is not an actual pickle, it is simply a Christmas ornament that is shaped like a pickle. The ornament is hidden on a family's Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. On Christmas morning, all of the children in the house take turns looking for the pickle ornament and the child who finds the Christmas pickle receives an extra present for his or her good work.

I have a few things written down that I want to do, attend, & experience again quickly, I can not say "Bucket List" because a bucket list is for things you have NEVER done. I do have a few of those as well but oddly enough those aren't as important to me to accomplish as the ones that I have done before but it has been a while....like the Nevada City event, the trips over to S.F and Monterey's candy cane lane to mention a few this time of year.
The reconnecting with my siblings has been a major blessings and I am cherishing having sister time, we are very similiar in our sense of humor so it is a hoot doing things together. I try and not think of what life would have been like if we were raised together being so close in age and stuff but focus on the memories we have made. We lost 22 yrs of our lives together (thanks mom NOT) but we have more memories to establish and our children are close that is a HUGE rebuilding of our heritage/family history. I will post photos from our adventure after we attend :]
