Britton made her debut performance in the Cherub Choir at our Methodist Church. She sang We wish you a Merry Christmas and Silent Night. I am proud to say that she did not pick her nose or scabs. Whew.
Kenley loves playing the piano. Maybe she will have some of her great-grandfather Karl’s musical inclinations. He was the Dean of the School of Music at FSU and a concert violinist. I can’t even carry a tune.
This was Big Daddy’s Christmas gift. I commissioned my very very talented cousin Katie (SCAD graduate) to do an oil painting of Britton. I knew she was talented but it far exceeded my expectations. Thank you Katie!
All in all we had a wonderful Christmas! Surrounded by our family and having my husband and two healthy children- my “cup runneth over”.
I took this year as an opportunity to write each person in my immediate family, a letter telling each of them just how much they meant to mean. I think that now, 4 months later, I am realizing fully how our experience at Shands has changed my perspective. No day should be taken for granted, because in an instant everything can change.
