We have started this tradition of getting together for breakfast the Saturday before Christmas, and Johanna made sure her Mom and Dad could join us. We had coffee and bagels and eggs and lots of good things.


Because Cocoa Joy could not be with us, she sent a gift—a little stuff Cocoa Joy. (See the photo below.) “Can I take her home,” Johanna asked. “Yes,” said her Mom, “You can even sleep with her. “Ahhh — the perfect gift, Cocoa Joy!”

Once the gifts were opened, Johanna was ready to check out other things.
