We are happy to say that, now that Joey is 19 years old, he is adding to the holidays in ways that we had never imagined. He practically flew down the hill at the Christmas tree farm where we went to chop down the tree, in anticipation of the day. I remember the days when he just waited inside the building, shivering. His wishes for gifts remain simple – just a couple of VHS movies! He understands numbers of days and counts them down as Christmas approaches.
If that wasn’t enough, we have learned some fascinating information which we would like to share with you in the picture below (you can click it to enlarge for reading). Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
