On Christmas Eve, my grandfather wanted to take a picture with his granddaughters.  My sister, cousin, and I lined up in front of the Christmas tree, ready for the annual family photo.  Before my mother could take the picture, my grandfather stopped her.  He told my wonderful girlfriend to get in the picture.  He said “If you are the love of my granddaughter’s life, then that makes you my granddaughter.”  This is why I love my family.
