While I do love making, buying and giving gifts for Christmas I think more than anything I just love that the entire world seems to turn their focus inward, on the family. We've been given quite a gift living so close to most of my family (Ben and Sara still need to get here). Cordelia is getting the benefit of growing up with so many adults to love and enjoy her.
She has Eric and I for mom and dad business, but then there is my family. Cordelia loooves cuddling with my mom and they have their own little repetoire of routines and inside jokes that are just for them.
My brother Sam is the fun guy (not fungi) who is totally unpredictable, a tiny bit scary because of it, but endlessly fascinating.
My dad is the one to play and explore with. Most recently they spent a winter afternoon checking out the backyard. When they came in Cordelia was dirty and pink nosed, but so pleased.
