Tom said…

“Mom, this is the best Christmas ever!” Tom said, out of the blue a full 3 days before Christmas.

“Why’s that, baby?” I asked, thinking it might have something to do with the gift exchange at my mom’s house the night before.

“Because I love you,” he said simply. Then he gave me a quick hug and a Tommy-Boy-Thousand-Watt-Smile before bounding off to play with his brothers.

And THAT is what Christmas is all about.

    You are a lucky woman, and a smart one too to be growing boys as gorgeous as that!
    While it can’t compete with Tom, nonetheless Happy Christmas to you and yours!

    Barbara — I’m laughing at how apt that statement is. You are exactly right.

    Tessa — yes, he IS the sweetest boy ever…or at least one of 4. :)

    Kate — Thank you so much and a very Merry Christmas back to you!
