The countdown has begun!


We LOVE Christmas around here, and I am 
more than ready to get out my trees.  (I have quite
a few.)  For now, tho, this is my favorite 
decoration.  It sits in the kitchen for all to see...


My friend, Sarah, came up with this brilliant idea, 
and Sam and I fight over the dry-erase marker each 
morning.  Love it to pieces!




Lovely Photo - Wordless or Not-So-Wordless Wednesday at Aspire




We were taking some photos last night, in preparation
for the Christmas card.  These guys make my life so much fun...
