After much harassment encouragement, I entered the blogosphere to document the delightful (or otherwise) and unexpected moments of my younger daughter's life. Hannah was born in 1998. She surprised us with her extra chromosome, and continues to surprise us with her humor, intellect and obstinacy. She takes our breath away. As my elder daughter once wrote, when Hannah was born, our family went from ordinary to extraordinary.

We wish you a Merry Christmas!
The Grandparents aren't arriving until Sunday, so just the four of us will have a quiet Christmas, and have a sequel once they come.
The stockings are hung.
The cookies are ready for Santa. And Hazel is plotting to steal that carrot. (She really loves carrots!)
We hope to have a nice long conversation with Kate. Yesterday she was officially sworn in to the Peace Corps. Tomorrow she is having Christmas dinner at the embassy. She moves into her new house (brand new, with hot running water!) on Sunday.
May you all have a blessed day filled with love, joy, family and friends.
