Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Blog Talkers #51

Post photos from your favorite holiday moments from last year. From two years ago. From five years ago. When looking back on these moments, how have the holidays changed for you? For your family?

From Christmas 2006
One major change is that I can no longer lift Aidan. The other is that this year has been so hectic, I still haven't decorated.

From Christmas 2006
This scene is one that has changed over the years. The boys' toys are getting more complex each year as they grow.

Chris Carving
Chris is another important change. This picture is from 2005 when we hosted Christmas dinner with the family. Chris and I have been together 2 1/2 years now. I don't see that changing any time soon- he is family now.

Christmas Disaster Zone
This mess hasn't changed over the years. It still takes me the rest of Christmas to clean up from Christmas morning. Also, every other year, the day of Christmas changes. Their dad gets them the other day. So, sometimes we celebrate on Christmas Day, other times on Christmas Eve.

From 2002 Christmas
I couldn't find pictures from 2003. We lost pictures in a computer crash, and I think those were included. So many changes in this picture. We no longer have that rug or the furniture in this picture. The boys are so much older now!

From 2002 Christmas
This, however, never seems to change. I sit there reading directions and making things work while the boys take delight in their new acquisitions.

It is hard to believe how much my children have grown. We have been through a lot together, but somehow Christmas stays magical.
