We are so lucky! Two of our seven grandchildren live less than a mile from our house here in Santa Barbara!
Three more lived here for 3 years; but for 8 years they have been living in Switzerland; and are moving back here next summer!
For a multitude of reasons, Christmas has been “childless” for 8 years; and this year we had grandchildren!! Their “presence” was our “present”!
Here are our daughter Ella; and her children Poppy (Penelope) 13, and Tommy 9.
