I always thought it was the house that gave me so many magical memories, but it was my family. I miss my grandparents very much and it was nice have a big central place to meet up with everyone. My grandpa had the most generous, kindly spirit that attracted everyone to him. His happiness was infectious. He was a doctor loved by the entire city, but always had time for every single member of his huge family, or even friends of friends of friends. My mom has 7 brothers and sisters. So it was always exciting seeing the house FULL of people, which it always was. They came to my Nutcracker performances, dance recitals. My g parents were the best. His corner of the dining table was filled with letters from family and friends, books, photo albums, trains, and always See’s Chocolates. Check out that wooden framed cat plate. Yes!

This Christmas picture describes the happy chaos that happened at the Connor house: grandpa on the phone being called by one of his many admirers, tons of presents, Granny and her fabulous portrait hanging about the couch, my mom and fiona, all squished on the couch, photos, photos EVERYWHERE. And of course, always cats. 🙂
