They are very serious about their decorating.
I wonder where they could have gotten that from?

Something's hiding in there

Can't believe it's that time of year again. 
The kick off to the Christmas season: our annual hunt for the family Christmas tree.

Finally found it. Only an hour later. Maybe hour and a half. tops.
Don't know why I'm talking in fragment sentences. No idea.

Being thankful

I'm thankful 
that most of my family is near - and the rest is not too far
for friendships dear
for my drafty old house
for full bellies
for peace of mind
for the ability to help others
for gainful employ
for the promise of eternity

Oh . . . if only his eyes were open!

Oh for the days of tying to keep only one child in frame!

Hmmm, Bronwen is about to loose it.

Now look at the little one . . . she's off in her own world.

Okay let's call it quits!
