Hark, your comments are music to my ears!
I too have noticed the change as the years go by and how people lose their identity .

As for Blake in Vietnam, I think the first English words that some of the locals learned were" Sebastian, Jasper, Sela and Carys"..LOR

I agree!

I was so proud to begin seeing pictures of my parents being a couple doing wild and exciting things. They were finally back to being xx & xy, rather than Mom & Dad in all of the pictures.

They just climbed Machu Picchu a year ago, and I have crazy pictures of them at Iguazu Falls between Argentina & Brazil.

Wonderful to see what is waiting for me in the future. Because of them, I've stopped lamenting the fact that at my "young" age I haven't been all the places in the world that as a teen I'd thought I'd have been by my now "ancient" (to a teen) age, and now look forward to where I'll STILL be able to go in the years ahead.

What a puzzle to think about how much we like to see what they accomplished, and they like to brag about what we've accomplished. Guess we've all grown up!

PS - Pam, you are on about the 90's music. That or we can compromise with 70's classics. :)

Dear Tess,
Just to let you know.... these grandparents broke with your pattern and just included a picture of themselves looking very fine at my brother's 40th wedding anniversary. (maybe I should send you our Christmas letter, what a concept, I intended to - it may yet happen) This does not mean that we are not as besotted with our grandchildren as others or that we are completely self - absorbed. Perhaps we felt that we really couldn't claim such amazing, beautiful and all consumingly interesting children as our own and left the pictures to their parents, Jen and Mark. Cameron's each "I peed in the toilet!" announcement and each new skill is greeted with astonishment and delight. Hannah is maturing in good and scarey ways and we hardly know what to expect from day to day as she approaches "cool" from time to time. Sad but true. Anyway, from a non-typical grandma - Happy New Year and all the best for 2005. Read your blogs often and enjoy them. Love, KP
