Lloyd gave me another present that's special to me. On our first anniversary, he gave me a charm bracelet with the liberty bell on it because we were living in Philadelphia. Then he gave me another charm when he graduated from Penn, another when Jen was born and also Kristen. Then the price of gold went through the roof and we couldn't afford charms any more. But this Christmas he gave me the bracelet all shined up and with a new charm--a silver trumpet (white gold) for Aaron. He says that he'll give me a charm for every child eventually, a handy gift idea for any occasion. I almost cried and now I can't wait for the rest of them.
Lloyd had to work on Christmas Day, of course, but Ellen and Jason came and had a turkey dinner with us. All in all it was a wonderful, pleasant but quiet day. Like I said, it's different without little ones but that's not to say it's bad.
