Merry Christmas and Happy New Year indeed.
Fond memories of years gone by at Christmas and people no longer around to share it with. Ya'll make the most of Christmas and forget the A&M x's Longhorns arguments etc etc for a day 'cause THESE are the days you'll want to make the most of later on and be able to look back.
Only thing I don't miss is toy assembly...but one of the best pictures we have of my Father in Law, a licensed Architectural Engineer, is the look of frustration on his face with his legs wrapped around the front of a Big Wheel at 3am to get ready for Santa's arrival and I can't repeat the language...fond memories indeed.
