First visit

Yesterday we had our "Pre-Christmas", that grandma is turning into a tradition. Some years ago she decided to invite friends and relatives to celebrate Christmas in advance, since on Christmas day everybody wants to be with their families. Our compadres Fróes and Lia, our long date (not to say "old") friends Bona and Ivalda, and the more recent friends ("just" 10 years, amazing how time flies!) Junior, Cris and children (our teacher of the art of being grandparents), and also Bel, a new friend and great artist and teacher. And the surprise gift was the first visit of our grandson Guilherme, who was very coll about the center of attention, and spent the afternoon very quiet, savoring his crib- playpen - recreation-center - etc, massage included!
It's no wonder he slept smiling!

Our thanks to our friends, not only for the visit, but for being with us every moment. Better than anything I could write, I dedicate to you 3 songs that talk about friendship: Canção da América, by Milton Nascimento and Fernando Brandt; That's What Friends Are For, by Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager; and Bridge Over Troubled Water, by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel...
