Well - it is that time that I dread every Christmas vacation - Chris, my youngest son, has returned to school at Bama. Sadly - Jimmy was busy at work at the ski resort in Colorado and could not spend Christmas with us.
When did my sons grow up? When did they come home on occasion for school breaks, season breaks (ski season is over) or just for a short visit?
They come and the house becomes a whirlwind of activity - alive with laughter, teasing and late hours. Once they leave the house life becomes so obviously quiet.
I am so proud of both of my sons but gosh - couldn't they live a little bit closer than Colorado (Jimmy) and Alabama (Chris)?
