    It was a chilly day cutting the tree, but loved having you with us! It's just such a treat to have all of you home together. Those little girls bring a bundle of joy with them every time:) And it is such fun to watch them interact — lots of loving hugs, kisses and smiles to share. What a little bookworm Lauren is — she just loves to "read" and be read to. Love you all, Nana Jo
