A Christmas to Remember...

What a wonderful day! Home with family and friends. We are exhausted, but so happy to have had such a special memories of this incredible day.


Our most favorite gift of all.


So much for cutting back this year...


Grandma and Blaze with matching hats.


Proud Daddy,


And Mommy too!


Such a happy, happy boy.


Standing tall with Papa.


Opening gifts...

Silly Daddy, that's Blaze's hooded towel.


I am going to really like this thing they call Christmas !?!


Fun with Papa...


And Grandma too!


Playing cards with the adults.


More silly hats???


Note to self...'do not hold Blaze over my head after eating!'

We are both so very happy to have such an amazing gift this holiday season. He has brought such joy into our lives and to all those that he meets. It is really something that such a small child can be the light of our lives. He has brought us such a renewed sense of purpose to our lives. He brings so much happiness to us every moment of every day.

No other gift could top having Blaze with us for Christmas, but Gerry definitely brought tears to my eyes with a gift of a guardian angel locket with a photo of our Frankie girl inside. I just know that she was with us here in spirit on Christmas as she always is each and every day.


We talked on the phone with family throughout the day and even got to Skype with my big sister and her girls so they could see how big Blaze is getting. Gerry's Mom in Canada, had a great Christmas Day visit from his youngest daughter Kristin, then on the day after Christmas (Boxing Day in Canada) she was joined by his sister Rhonda, along with her fiance and son and also his older daughter Jessica and her husband and 3 boys, they all came for a visit. Her house hasn't been that full in years! Now that's what the holidays are all about, enjoying time with family.


We are looking forward to the New Year, which will be here before we know it. Blaze has his Doctor's appointment on January 5th. He will be getting his 4 month checkup and also his next round of immunizations. We are really excited to find out how much he has grown both in weight and length.

Christmas 2009, definitely a day in Blaze's life that we will remember.......with many, many more to come.
