I felt as if I had stepped into a Martha Stewart scene
It was easy to remember the teenage boys who waited at our door, eager to devour those seven dozen cookies.
How I fretted and planned and worried about it more than all my other Christmas gifts combined.
that brought puddles of tears for both of us.
I remember my friend Leisa modeling her "Birthday in a Box" gift...how sweet is that!
I remember when Henry and Santa looked into each other's eyes and loved what they saw.
Dorothy the puppy had a hard time waiting for Christmas...she kept finding her hidden present under the tree and couldn't help herself from playing with it. We eventually gave in and let the clever pooch have her gift early.
We will likely remark at how much Henry looked like his Mama in those days
