Welcome to Families First Monthly
Our Annual Party Issue adds a colorful, festive slant to this cabin fever time of year. The stories include fresh foods and green parties (not the Saint Patrick kind of green), Great Lakes Potato Chips, a Winnie-the-Pooh inspired baby shower, flower fairies; our columnists feature children’s parties, gifts for kids, and party favors. One of the best family celebrations is when a loved one is married. See our “ABC’s of Weddings” story on page 10. Erin Fry wrote about the special occasion of celebrating the life of a loved one who has passed. For me, the favorite part of any party or celebration large or small is people we share them with. Have fun planning your upcoming parties and gatherings.
Winter white surrounds us for another month or two so many will enjoy the snow-related activities. To pay tribute to the season we put together a Winter Festivities story covering a few of the area’s festivals and events. Our littlest snowbirds Fam & Ily took a vacation to someplace warmer. They will return in the spring.
