Well, I said yesterday that I wouldn’t post pictures of Valerie every day, but some folks have asked to see more.

We’ll celebrate Christmas on New Year’s Day, since Valerie wasn’t with us on the 25th. We have a tree with presents under it waiting for Saturday morning!

We start with a video of Valerie meeting babushka (grandmom) Cantrell over Skype:

    Thanks, Lauren. I appreciate your encouraging words.

    I hope becoming a parent at 50 will serve to keep me young at heart. Abraham started a family much later than I am, so I have some hope that things will work out just fine.
