Yes our family went thru this a few times.  When my mom passed away we changed things a little.  Then when my brothers got married, we’ve changed things too, but mostly just times that diner and gift giving happened.

The thing that was the hardest was when my dad got a g/f.  His favorite holiday is thanksgiving, he really just loves the food and us hanging out together enjoying each other.  Their first year together he went out of state to her sisters house and didn’t even call us.  We rushed thru Christmas that year too so he could go to her son’s house for christmas.   It’s kind of pathetic actually but you can either whine and cry about it or enjoy the time you do have.  There are so many more days in the year that aren’t holidays that you can spend time and build memories, and you can’t make people keep doing family traditions.

That’s how I try to think about it or I get so pissed off and hurt.  So this thanksgiving I went to SO’s family’s in another state.. .haha but i called everyone!
