Every year it gets harder and harder to gather our brood for the annual family photo.  It is my gift every year and having them all there means a lot to me.  There are lots of schedules to coordinate but the day after Thanksgiving the stars aligned for just that.   The weather was not so great but the cows provided  a nice backdrop for the day……..

and without further ado………from our household to yours we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year….

Life is crazy busy……..for me family is everything.

When you find yourself trying to control too much, and thus enjoying too little, challenge yourself to let go, relax, take a deep breath and appreciate “what is” for a while.”
