First Christmas



There are a lot of "things" that one can get for Christmas - and this was our first Christmas, so we are happy with the "loot" - but this is the best. JJ is the size of this Christmas tangerine.

Tangerines have a special meaning to me. Growing up in Ketchikan meant we didn't have a lot of fresh fruit-- especially in the winter. But at Christmas time we would get boxes of tangerines from Japan. Always a treat.

So, today we read that this is the size of JJ.

Hey- kid -- every Christmas in the future when I look at a Clementine or tangerine I will remember your mother and my first one-- when this was the size of you inside her. Love you kid-- can't wait til you read this story.
