But today is Christmas! It is Merrilee's third Christmas with us -- but only the second with both mommy and daddy.
This time last year, mommy was in Iraq. And this year, we pause and say of word of thanks to all of those service men and women who are serving their country and separated from their families. They make it possible for us all to sleep a little better at night.
We're not certain, but we think Rudolph flew by about 3 a.m. and when we woke up this morning, sure enough, the jolly man in red had made a visit while we were asleep.
Here are some scenes from Christmas 2010!
And now everyone is bracing for the newest snow storm...
May the new year bring everyone health, peace, and happiness.
