Week 21

Friday, December 18, 2009


This picture means so much to me. It was taken when I was around 8 months old, on my very first Christmas. 1984. So many little things from this photo stand out in my mind. The cabinet behind us, I remember it well. The photo hanging on the wall in the other room, I could almost touch it in my memories, that's how real it is. And of course, the love that my dad and I share.


I've set this photo in the tree like an ornament, and every time I walk past it my eyes fill with tears of Christmas joy.

I can't wait to spend this Christmas with my dad. In just one week, he'll be holding my babies the exact same way that he held me.

I'm so happy that your Daddy is one his way to spend Christmas with you...and your babies (including the one in the oven!). I hope he has fun soaking in all the love :)

I love the picture! It looks great. Right now I keep thinking about how I need to invest in a scanner so I can do flash backs about more than what is just on my computer.

It's also great that you made an ornament with this picture!
