Thea's first Christmas and birthday party

Dear Thea,

You just celebrated your first Christmas, and the next day, had your very first birthday party! Both were wonderful.

For Christmas, your grandma came over and we had a big ham dinner with cheese grits, collard greens, and, your favorite, green beans. You got lots and lots of toys, including a couple humongous toys that almost take up the whole living room. Those were from your grandma. Thanks, Grandma!

The next day, you had about 20 of your closest friends over to celebrate your birthday. You played with Rosalie, Alex, and Lila, and all the adults brought you toys. Everyone had a great time, and all the babies cried when they had to go home.

Much love,

[The day we had Thea's party was also the day of the tragic tsunami in Asia. Absolutely horrifying and heart-breaking.]
