I must admit it is getting more and more difficult to carry out this tradition of matching Christmas Pajamas since the family is getting larger and larger.
I think it is more meaningful to me than anyone else which makes it difficult for me to dissolve the tradition. I guess this is my way of feeling still connected as a family even though we are all living so far from one another. The hardest part of being a mother is letting go in many aspects of life.
I am so grateful for each of our children, and feel very blessed for the companions they have chosen to spend the eternities with. That also goes for JoAnna and Zack. He has been a big part of JoAnna's life for 5 years, so the news of an engagement was no big surprise, but a welcomed announcement.
