What do we think about on Christmas Eve? The Children
After reviewing my year in pictures (many of them featuring children) I ended today’s blog with three of my earlier blogs — my very first blog post ever — and two posts that are all about keeping our children healthy.
In January, I bought my first Apple computer and learned how to use WordPress to build this site. Then, I launched this blog site on February 9 and today is my 320th consecutive daily blog. Enjoy.

Not a white Christmas; but a white Halloween. The home of Jason and Lisa Hicks in Holden, MA. Our first snow of the season, we got about ten inches on Halloween and haven't had anymore since.
Lisa Hicks with my grandson Andrew - a rare snowshoe outing in October
My three grandsons at Boston's famous Fenway Park -- Collin (10) Cooper (8) and Andrew (9). It was Cooper's very first trip to this legendary ballpark.
Each summer, one or more of my grandchildren stays with me (GranBuddy) for one week of sailing instruction at our yacht club's sailing foundation. That's Andrew (9, on the right) during the first minute of his sailing career. Not too shabby.
The birthday boy, Cooper, is on the left of this group of my four MA-based grandchildren. Cooper, Peyton, Collin and Andrew, 8, 11, 10 and 9 respectively. Violet (2) lives in Atlanta and will be featured last.
Susan Benigas and husband John aboard Legacy (a Hinckley) the day after our book launch party. Susan is one of three women without whom there would have been no book. The other two are my girlfriend Ruth Seydel and my agent Marilyn Allen.

My first shipment of 500 books arrives at 34 Main Street in September -- one hour later I was celebrating with champaign at the home pictured above.
Healthy 4Leaf family at Wachusett Mountain YESTERDAY! -- Lisa, Colin, Cooper, Andrew, Peyton and Jason on 12-23-11.
Merry Christmas from Violet, my youngest granddaughter, who lives in Atlanta, GA. This is her third Christmas.
My First Blog. Waxing nostalgic for a moment, I thought that I would share my very first blog with you, posted on the morning of February 10, 2011 — Barbara Walters…A Missed Opportunity. Also since Christmas is all about the children, now is a good time to think about how we can ensure that they enjoy vibrant health for their entire lives.
Children — NOTHING is more important than what they eat!
Protecting our children. And not just from predators.
