The best present ever arrived at La Guardia airport last night.
Jason Todd Squires touched down just before 8 pm.
We took the subway home.
Raised a glass to Father Christmas.
Snacked on some cheese balls.
And went to bed.
This morning we opened a wee collection of presents. Thank you for the cards, emails, phone calls and gift parcels.
It is heartwarming to know I am missed, just as I miss home.
Dad, thanks for the Rolleiflex and helping getting me to New York. It is because of you I am here.
Mom, where did you find the marzipan pigs?? So cute but I'm not sure I'll eat them. Auntie P, don't worry about
the PJ's. I'll get them when I am back in the Motherland.
Shandra you went to town with the Bodem mug, polka dot paraphernalia and various treats. Love them!
Clark and Joan I am hanging the Ptarmigan on my dresser, where I will see it everyday and think of you. (As well,
my laptop screen saver is of the cabin.)
Julie Green your shortbread and white truffles are to die for. I'll be walking them off for months.
John and Aleitha, the scarf is stunning and sooooooo soft. I am wearing it right now.
Amanda I love the card and the enclosure. Very generous. Jason left the granola in Yellowknife for fear of being
detained by US customs. Hello to John and your mom.
Nick Lawson! You are too kind. You are welcome to stay at our place any time.
Teresa Patzer what a beautiful, sunny family photo. You look like one of the kids.
Thinking of you all and sending you lots of love from New York City.
We are about to cook a chicken and head to a classmate's for Christmas dinner.
