It's getting hot in here...

 I warned you.
This here... this happened.
The obligatory family Christmas card photo-op... sabotaged by the rebellious hubs.
He only agreed to step into the shots if he could be a shirtless Mr.Tumnus or some other such oddity, (oh, and the beaver had to sit in too).

Now you know why you didn't receive a Christmas card, friends.
You're welcome.

We have a pretty silly nest here... and, I love it.
I hope your nest has a very wonderful holiday season... filled with warmth,
laughter, good food, friends and family.

I'm also hoping for good health - as we're all still recovering from some nasty colds around here (like swallowing a weed wacker).  We take such simple things for granted until they're taken away it seems... 
God, teach me to have a grateful heart.
It's been a year rich with memories, and His faithfulness every step through the journey.

We have a lot to celebrate.

Merry Christmas, friends!

Mel ;o)
