2007 was a special Christmas for the Big Guy. He got a Jedi light sabre. Fully extended, it was as tall as it’s owner. Today he is 17 and 6′-2″ tall. I don’t think anyone knows what became of the light sabre. One of the joys of doing this marathon is looking back on previous Christmas celebrations and seeing just how much the grand kids have grown.
The grandson is the youngest of our four grandchildren and the only boy. That’s right, he has three older sisters that you will meet in the coming days. After three grand daughters the life in the family was changed by a baby boy. But then, a new baby in any family changes everything. 2000 years ago the birth of a baby boy in Bethlehem changed the world and continues to change lives one heart at a time.
