To grandmother's house we go...

This Christmas story is about family-- a big, blended one. Sharri Kinkead and Michael Madden married at Christmastime 13 years ago in their Wisconsin dairy farmhouse, accompanied by his six adult children and her son. Since then, holidays at Morning Glory Farms have been celebrated in earnest and have come to include 12 grandchildren (with more on the way). For these late-in-love grandparents, creating traditions and building memories take precedence over expensive gifts and fancy decorations.

Writing the Holiday Letter

I have in front of me a rainbow stack of about 200 holiday letters that my friends and family gathered for me. Many are printed on elaborate holiday-motif stationery; some have family pictures integrated right into the text. Others are printed in green or red ink-- or both! At a glance, it looks as if the holiday letter has become as much a decorating project as putting up lights and other seasonal adornments.

Trading in that old runner for a safer ride

What a difference a year makes. Last Christmas, Santa wanted to trade that old sleigh for something a little safer-- good crash tests, air bags all around, that sort of thing. He especially wanted those new inflatable head-protection devices, the kind that cushion your head and neck in a side crash. (Who can blame him? Streets are risky, especially for someone who drives only one day a year.)
