Hi, everyone. We have had a marvelous year. You may not have heard, but Gerald and I were awarded the “Husband/Wife, Father/Mother, and Grandfather/Grandmother of the Century Award”! We’re just so humbled by this recognition. Of course, we never could have achieved these honors without our amazing children and grandchildren. They make it easy to be award winners. TOOT, TOOT.
Speaking of those amazing grandchildren, we have five now. When they come over to Grammy and Papa’s, it is a happy houseful of commotion. Of course, they use their “inside voices” and never make a mess. Oh, did I mention that they have all been nominated for the “Grandchild of the Year” award? I’m sure glad I’m not on that committee. There would just have to be five first place winners! TOOT, TOOT.
Some of you may remember from last year’s Christmas letter,(doesn’t time just fly?) I had instituted a healthy eating plan and exercise regimen for Gerald and myself. Well, I’m here to tell you that hard work, discipline, and persistence pay off. I am now a size 6 (please don’t hate me, ladies) and the doctor just told Gerald he has the heart and lungs of a 25 year old! TOOT, TOOT!
Well, I have to go. I’ve got cookies to bake for those adorable grandkids, and later tonight I’m volunteering at the local shelter for homeless birds who have learning disabilities. TOOT, TOOT!
You’re always welcome at our place. We’d love to have you, but make sure you call first. I think we’re busy that night.
Remember to keep the Merry in Christmas this year!
