Oh the excitement is building...the countdown...things will be getting very busy, with cooking and wrapping and ironing and cleaning. I just wanted to take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas to all ~ I hope everyone thoroughly enjoys the next few days. I am going to try to savor every moment with my family and not get wrapped up in making everything perfect (did I just say that??). I will try.

I never dreamed that by this Christmas our Mia would be home with us. She is home. She is a part of our family. She made us complete!

Enjoy the Christmas card pictures that didn't make it (for obvious reasons!) :

On the chess table...

In a box (we did try to get Penny in the pictures,but as you can see SHE was getting stressed!)

By the piano...

Things are going real downhill now!

Kisses and tickles and silliness!
To BELIEVE in making wishes
and having faith they can come true.
To BELIEVE that you can find some joy
in everything you do.
To BELIEVE in giving gladly for no reason
just because,
To BELIEVE in love... that's what it means
To BELIEVE in Santa Claus !
