All I have to say about Heidi and AJ is they were such a pleasure to photograph! I loved spending the cold, frosty morning with you, chatting along the way to keep warm.
And, Heidi, I just love your smile.
I love how the two of you just work together.
Heidi and AJ I can't tell you how much I enjoyed our time together. I absolutely cannot wait for your wedding in July - it's going to be great!!

What kind of sick Santa delivers a game called "Doggie Doo"? I mean really....Doggie Doo?? I should have known. It looks all sweet and cute, right??? The object of the game...
And, it makes lots of gas passing sounds...and you are just inclined to have to watch and wait because you never actually know how long until it drops out... But sometimes, well, sometimes it just gets stuck and you need a flashlight to investigate. See, I told you what kind of sick Santa delivers such a game???

What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace. ~Agnes M. Pharo
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!!!!!

Nana must of known the snow was going to arrive. So for an early Christmas gift the kids got to open early packages with new snow tubes and new snow pants!! They could not wait to bust out the door the next morning when they awoke to all the white stuff lying on the ground.
And, this one...was inside looking out the backdoor with the saddest puppy face I have ever seen. I knew he wanted to be out there with all the kids and join in all the fun. So, I opened the door and he busted up the hill.
All in all, it was a great day for sledding.

I wonder if anyone else has an ear so tuned and sharpened as I have, to detect the music, not of the spheres, but of earth, subtleties of major and minor chord that the wind strikes upon the tree branches. Have you ever heard the earth breathe? ~Kate Chopin

This year I said to myself..."Self we are going to have a stress free holiday." And, that is exactly what I am having. So when the lights on the top of the tree would not work and Coy fussed and fussed with them...but to no avail they remained dark.
And, this one insisted on decorating it right away...so I said go for it. Who cares if I can't get the lights to work...because you know what I am not stressing about it. Remember? I am having a stress free holiday.And, so the ornaments were placed.

On this final day of the month, I am so grateful for doing this gratitude project. Grateful for being able to stick with it and enjoy it as much as I have. Grateful for everyone who has followed along and commented along the way. Grateful that even though the month has come to end in just 30 short days, I feel like I can keep coming up on a daily basis things that I am so grateful for and for that I am just plain grateful!!!!
I'm not dead, just falling.

In tyring to get into the holiday spirit, I bought some new shiny and glittery ornaments.
And, above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." ~ R. Dahl
