    4 generations

    My mom and dad go to Alabama for the winter so we got together for an early Christmas yesterday. 4 generations of us now ranging in age from 83 to 3 weeks. I'm lucky that my mom and dad are still healthy and active in their 80's, blessed to have a great son and fortunate to have a new healthy grandson.....Christmas couldn't be any better this year for us.

    Great family. Should we take up a collection to buy y'all some shoes?

    Is that why nobody's smiling except mom?

    Nah, she finally got to hold Aiden. I'll say this for my son, he is stingy in letting others hold his son, my wife said I was the same way with my boys....must be in the genetics.

    Congrats Steve! Life is good! You can imagine how I felt about getting 5 generation photos in June on both my wife and my sides of the family!

    Stu, didn't your kids get your mom and dad to adopt the no shoes rule. If we ever get new carpet I think we might go that route.

    Congrats...great picture Steve.

    I used to take guitar lessons from a guy who had a "no shoes in the house" rule. We have three dogs, and even though LOML and I keep a pretty clean house, we have to wear shoes in the house to keep our socks reasonably clean. If there was a market for dog hair, I'd be stinkin' rich.
