This year's paper toys are ready for distribution to the Hoss clan, complete with Christmas giving assignments. I'm Santa's secretary (er, administrative assistant) and cannot wait!
2015 marks a year of extraordinary happiness, with 3 weddings(!) – nephew Derek to Erica, niece Sheryl to Dan, and favorite daughter, knitting muse, and sweater model Juliet to favorite soon-to-be son-in-law James;
and also a year of loss as we've said good-bye to brother John.
These events are represented perfectly, I'd say, by 3 diamond rings and a wreath on the water – the circle(s) of life.
