Nice, nostalgic story.

It fizzles a bit toward the end--you don't want to end your writing with a cliche. Ending with one of your wonderful memories, perhaps from London, would be more effective.

Love the imagery of a snowy and chilly London, having just been there for the first time a few months ago.

Hi Norms, nice to see you writing again.You are so blessed to have a musical family, especially Dave with all the instruments he can play. Christmas in London is such a special memory and yes, lets hope the girls continue with the tradition. Love Ken.
Love the Christmas memories. They sound very special.

Nice entry! The writing feels a little detached - you could use fewer "to be" or passive voice verbs to give it more of a powerful punch. An enjoyable walk down memory lane!
It's good to bring up the memories that encourage us and others. Good writing.
Ah, the passing of the generations. You captured it nicely. Well done!
