Andy gave up his usual blueprint wrapping, bought a giant coloring book from the craft store $1 bin and tore out the pages. His wrapping included boxes of crayons too.

My cute mom had the best day, overwhelmed with love and gifts. Door #3 pretty much put her over the edge.

This year Andy made a book for each of the girls. It was the story of his secret recipe for clam chowder, a kitchen tradition he's shared with them since they were little. The dedication and page one intro had everyone in tears.

And it all finished up late into the night with Andy's Christmas birthday to celebrate too with family and friends.

How lucky we are to have each other! 

That includes you, my friends. I hope it was a happy garland of days, each one a link to remind us of the joys and gifts a year strings together. xo
