The days leading up to Christmas 2011 - Some Highlights - (Ever so late!)

November: Driving On Ice for Jake's Morning Basketball Games

Or Driving on Snow to work over the mountains and back roads

Capturing the Full Moon Out the Front Door

And the Eclipse - gosh what a show

Catching Sami and one of Her friends Playing with Ipods and Phones

While I Capture Jake (44) During his Games (November and December Routine)

Decking the Halls - and Walls soon after Thanksgiving

Decking the tables and being told our tree is too Small

Lighting up the Darkness Outside - My Little House is Warm Inside!

And Getting Our Craft On

And Fighting Colds

Making our Tree Taller - Test Driving a New Tool

Thankful for a Real Tree that only cost $5.00

And the Simple Pleasure of a Grapefruit Spoon

Loving the Beauty of the Season - and a sweet little house!

And nice lazy breakfasts on the weekends with special treats from secret Santa's

Packaging and Wrapping for Family Afar

Goodies for Treatbags lie on the floor

Loving how fun it is to wrap special Gifts

The reminder of a Manger, Magic, and Sami's love of young things

Bouncy Baby Goats that make her heart sing

And Jake, who helps with cleanup and the treats to deliver to neighbors by bike in the cold

With Just One day left.... we prepare for the story... that never gets old.
