Christmas Eve

Tonight, we took Lilla to her very first candlelight Christmas Eve service.  Well, her first since she's been born anyway.  This is always such an emotional time for me as it was something that I did with my mother every year. She was such a Christmas freak.  As I sit in church holding my baby girl, I can hear my mom's voice singing very very loudly and joyfully.

Today would also have been my father's 66th birthday.  Happy Birthday Daddy.  I hope that you get a real present for your birthday this year, instead of one of your Christmas gifts unwrapped and re wrapped in birthday paper.  Christmas isn't the same without you.
