"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2016"
Cruz: We had a super fun night Friday night with our first ever Jorgensen Top Chef. You latched on to this idea with more excitement than I expected, and took your recipe choice, baking, and deliberating quite seriously! As I pulled those votes out of the Santa hat, you were so nervous you were almost shaking! Fortunately, your ultimate chocolatey brownies won the top prize and you got to open up an early Christmas present. I hope this is the start of a fun tradition for the four of us.
Mila: We've become quite accustomed to seeing you with this little notepad and pencil lately, taking "notes" and looking like a reporter. This, and your new favorite book, The Lost Cat, are high on your list. You've absorbed most of the words to this tale and can retell it well and I can't keep a straight face when you read the cat jumped in the "saddlebag." You are a funny little girl.
