Today marks the last day in the old calendar Christmas season so technically it is still the season to be jolly. . .
Today my parents flew back home. Ben came home a couple of days ago full of stories of his adventures in the lone star state. The girls really started to miss after a week and Ronia would clutch the phone when he would call and get this mournful far away look in her eyes as if she desperately wanted to believe that he was still alive. It was really sad. however Ben's homecoming was sweet to see. The first morning he was back all four girls piled into bed to snuggle with him, all talking at once.
He is a lucky man.
