After the Storm (a.k.a. Christmas)

Well, here it is the 27th of December. The overwhelming anxiety that naturally comes at Christmas is past and now we are in the "look back and reflect" stage. Christmas was great here at the Glass house. It was a really neat experience for all of us since C really understood what was going on this year. We all woke up and C had to wait for K and Mommy at the top of the stairs until Daddy could get all of the electronics ready to go (Camera and Camcorder). The day was filled with the sound of new toys and the excitement that comes from the receiving of gifts. The kids had a great day. We finally got done opening our abundance of gifts at about noon, and then spent the rest of the day talking to loved ones on the phone and playing with all of our new toys. I think everyone was pleasently surprised with all of their gifts. How great would it be if we could carry this feeling of love and generosity with us throughout the whole year? We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and that everyone is preparing themselves for the start of a new year. Thank you for all of your wonderful gifts, and even more importantly, thank you for your friendship and love.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Well, Christmas Eve is tomorrow. We have decided to stay here for the holidays. We are excited. This is really the first year that C has really understood what was going on. He can tell you all about Santa, and even more special in my opinion, he can tell you all about Baby Jesus being born in a barn in a manger. It is really a neat experience to see how excited he is getting. I think everything is ready. We are just waiting for that jolly old man in the red suit to come and visit. We hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and we hope to talk to all of our family either on Christmas Eve or Chrismas Day.
