"When I was six years old. I asked my father if he would get me a Susy Doll. He had told me that dolls cost to much, and that he would not get the doll for me. I was so upset. When it came to be Christmas I had to open my presents last. When I opened the box there was another box inside a big box inside of that one, and another box inside of that one, all together there were three boxes inside of each other. I then saw the pink box, I opened it, and there was my Susy doll all in pink."
"I have a tradition in my family that my mother started ever since all four of her girls moved out of her house, and had their own families."
"My three sisters and I all go to Moms house on Christmas Eve with our children and who ever else who wants to go would show up and we all exchange gifts we bought or made for each other. We all make an appetizer and we all eat and go home after hours of talking."

Anyone interested in working on this program is encouraged to ask for assistance from a staff person.
Those who take the GED test will begin to work on this while waiting for their GED test results to be received.
Like any new program, this one has bugs in it too, but each of you have been an enormous help in removing those bugs and having an accurate, up to date curriculum for all Resource Center people to use.
Thanks for your help Linda!
