Merry and Bright*

Merry Christmas!!

We're at home with family in Birmingham. 

Internet/phones have been down for the past 3 days. And to top it off the power went out the other night. No reason... a squirrel must have gotten some happy feet on the transformer out here in the woods.

 It's been kind of nice... and gives us an excuse to light every single candle in our house.

My mom and I decided some 'greenery' was much needed in her table setting. Luckily we live in a wooded area with lots of moss so we grabbed our flashlights and went on a midnight hunt for moss.

Came back with a bag full!

I'm signing off for the week, but before I do- 

What's Christmas without a few humiliating Christmas cards from years past...??

Ahhh yes. The year we put a donkey in our christmas card. That's my little brother, Cooper. (and the boy to the left? no idea.)
