The Opie family always does a nativity play for Christmas. Cohen was supposed to be a Shepard but spent most of the time on Daddy's lap. Jace never even made it on stage because Grandma's lap (and the piano) were irresistible.
We also went to the Tilson Christmas party this week. My uncle Dave throws a mean Mexican food party complete with the best tamales in town. Cohen was even brave enough to sit on Santa's lap, since it's the third Santa he's seen this year. Afterward he told me, "That's a different Santa, mom." He's very perceptive.
In other news, my cousin John Flaherty is engaged! I'm happy for him with all my heart and soul!
