Merry Christmas!!

I wish each of you a very Merry Christmas. I hope that all of your Christmas wishes come true, and that you find many genealogy goodies in your stocking hung by the chimney with care (you did hang one, didn't you?). I also hope that you are with your families and enjoying them, and they are enjoying your presence.

We made it to the Santa Cruz mountains on Friday (400 miles), and are staying in a cozy cabin in the redwoods. My daughter and her hubby are off for a night without kids in Monterey, and we are holding down the fort by ourselves. The 10 month old is such a happy little guy - he plays and laughs and coos and eats and goes to sleep on your shoulder (twice today so far) - all warm and snuggly. The 3 year old is a ball of fire but has a bad cough. He got over mom and dad being gone, ate OK and we watched Signing Time videos and TV game shows (he loves Lingo on the Games Show Channel, go figure!). I had to tell him two stories (he loves princes turned into frogs and vice versa) and then lie on his bed to get him to go to sleep. They usually wake up once during the night, so I may be tired tomorrow.

It's time for my long winter's cap and warm pajamas, so I'll wish you all a good night! And Merry Christmas!
