I can't remember, in my whole life, having a more enjoyable Christmas than this one. My kids, grandkids and significant others, 21 people in total, all got together last night.

For the last few years, we have been drifting into a family tradition of home made Christmas gifts. I wasn't sure how that was going to go, but the outcome far exceeded my fondest expectations. Even the teenagers were happy.

I love my family and I get a major kick out of seeing what they do when we all get together. Dumb stuff like watching my tough, construction worker son play Crazy Eights with his 5 year niece, or watching one of my 2 year old triplet grandsons examine how a tapered paper cup rolls in an arc gives me a great deal of pleasure. I guess the concept of familial love only sounds corny when you haven't experienced it.

My wife and I agreed it has been the best Christmas ever. Hope yours was the same!

Give this to kids/grandkids when you see fit. Glad to hear that you have a happy family. Have much appreciated your advice for a long time.
