life is a vapor...live in each moment.

like most of you these last several weeks have been a flurry of
preparations...activities...decorating...wrapping...cleaning...cooking.

our lives our full.
it has been a glorious year...new births...new schools...new endeavors.
here's to you and all you have dreamed...done...planned...and accomplished.

abbey far right as a baby mouse
in nutcracker.
i value all of you as inspirations for your lives well worth living.



i look forward to this new year...it will be a wonder to see
what all we can bring about in this next 365 days we have.

my family is and has always been my first priority.
our house was full to the brim over the holidays...and i love that.

friends gathered.
love, gifts, memories were shared.

it was a wondrous time to spend together.
i love watching the dynamics of all the different relationships.
and personalities coming together and interacting.
it is not always all smiles but that's family.





that's our family.
for good.
for bad.
for always.
merry new year to all.

Ahhh... family. The blessings we cherish dearest. I could look at your photos all day long. So very nice to have every one there at one time. You've captured the feelings of your time together so well. I do not envy all the wrapping you have to do each event. *hee-hee*

I wish you all the same for this year, dear Sister. May your dreams true and your garden flourish!!!
