Thoughts of the Holiday

You love flying

And you tolerate your mom dressing you funny - for now

But you love your mommy

And you and Lucky wonder if Santa will ever come
And helping dad cook

And playing with Grandma

And being the third generation
Dear JJ,

What a great week -- not just the holiday- but having family here.

Grandma and Grandpa Grosshans came- and Uncle Peter -and it is clear why we have holidays - not to celebrate something long ago - but to celebrate what we have today.

I look back to last year's blog - and remember- on Christmas you were the size of a tangerine - and now we have you! We can play with you, and love you, and watch you smile and grow and notice things-- and you are almost crawling.

Son, you are a part of something - a family - and that is the best reason to celebrate of all. We all love you
