Merry Christmas!

The perfect antidote to missing Steve on our third Christmas without him: these two spirited, joyful, sweet souls. Eighteen years ago today, Steve asked me to marry him. I thought his proposal was the best Christmas gift I could ever receive. That was before we had Cooper and Katie and the realization that children are perpetually the best gifts.


We discovered this note and a stocking filled with goodies for me on the front porch this morning. Thank you, mysterious elf!


Cooper this morning: "I wonder what Christmas in heaven is like." (pause) "I'll bet Daddy is dancing right now."

You're right, Cooper! I bet he danced ALL DAY and never got tired! God bless you!
