"It's Christmas Eve in Washington, America's home town..."
Most of you won't ever have heard that particular Christmas song, but it's one I know pretty well! And I have to say, I'm kind of partial to Christmas here -- it's where all the family is! We had so much fun this year -- as the boys get older Christmas just gets more and more fun!Some of the highlights were Peking Gourmet, baking gingerbread cookies, eating Dennis' cooking (as well as everyone else's -- it was all good), Santa spending 3-plus hours putting together a very elaborate castle, and of course being with our family! Merry Christmas to all!

After a year in Afghanistan, my dad, Dan Alexander (Della, to the boys) finally returned home last night -- just in time for Christmas! What a special Christmas treat for all of us. Welcome home Della! We're so happy you're here with us again! We love you!

Jake met Santa the other day. Did he tell Santa what he wants for Christmas? No. Did he talk Santa's ear off, about anything that popped into that little 5-year-old brain? You bet! Santa was cracking up, and Jake was talking, and talking, and talking... At least now there is no doubt -- Santa really does know everything. Jake told him!
