Loved this! I love unexpectedly hearing anecdotes about relatives. I especially felt that way this past week when I found out about and purchased a book about my hometown and saw so many photos of a precious time in my life.

I heard some stories about my dad that I hadn't heard, and it's nice to know that he was loved and remembered affectionately by so many. One former neighbor told me he came to her house to play Santa Claus for her children one Christmas, and that he was the best Santa she had ever seen. I was too young to remember, because that happened the year I was born, but I have two photos of him in his costume. I also recalled the wonderful outdoor Christmas display he built from scratch out of wood---a huge lighted lectern with a Bible on it, open to the Christmas verses in Luke. We only had it one season because we moved the next year, but it was a beautiful sight. So there was a little Christmas shared today.

But first, I'm going to put them to work dusting and running the sweeper. I hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope that you got that nap!

Tomorrow me and wife will be meeting up with a local lady that does daycare from her house. She only watches about 5 to kids and she had an opening. I know this will be hard for harper since she has always stayed with my SIS in law. But my SIS in law is going to be moving a little to far for us to have her go to her house each day. So I can image it will be a tough few days. But since harper might be an only child, it might be best for her to learn to be around more kids.

Love you all enjoy this spring weekend and Christmas will be here soon.

Good luck with the meeting. Hunting for new daycares is always stressful.

Be MERRY and safe, my dear friends!
Kittens!!! Enjoy them!!! I hope the flooding of your basement isn't too bad.
