Open-Minded: Changing traditions

We all remember waking up our parents up at 7 a.m. Christmas morning to run down the stairs and see the presents Santa Claus left under the tree. My family traditionally would wake up, eat muffins and bacon and open gifts. After opening all of the presents, we would get dressed and head down to southern Indiana to see our extended family. We would always spend the night at the Holiday Inn in Columbus, Indiana. Why? Simply because it’s a tradition.

Open-Minded: The fifth “one”

Nothing says “Catholic family” quite like five kids plus pets, in-laws and grandkids. Also known as my family. Good job mom and dad!
