I’m cheating – 2 Challenges in one.
Surprise! On Dec. 24th at 1:00 AM, my daughter came home to NH from her trip to AZ. I made her stand outside the door and wait while I prepared the atmosphere in the living room. A crackling fireplace is something we’ve never had in our house before, but this year thanks to Netflix we had it complete with Christmas Carols!
2012 In Photos
The year of the Dragon began with sunshine and contemplation.
We never escape the winter whiteness in NH.A trip to NYC for a change of scenery.Spring comes slowly…and so does change. It’s a difficult year.The blooming of hope.Beauty offers comfort.Life goes on.We may need to leave here someday….but we can still enjoy what we have for now.A strong & healthy man recovers quickly.Sharing memories with old friends.Saying I’ll love you forever, thank you, and goodbye for now.Taking care of my own health becomes a priority. For the first time in 20 years we celebrate the holidays in our own little home….and cope with winter the as best as we can.

A good reflection through photos. The first pic of the wood and sky is my favorite. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year … and thanks for visiting my little corner of the world.
Thanks for visiting mine too. I enjoy your witty posts. Hoping 2013 is bright for you and yours!
I love the “fireplace” and stockings hung with care! The world needs whimsy. SO may great pictures. The wooden dragon still is one of my favs. Hope you have a terrific New Year!
Ditto the above! I’m smiling at that last photo, even while I mull over the truths of the remainder.
I like to make people smile. The digital fireplace made my Christmas bright with smiles and laughter.
I teased my kids by telling them they were too old for stockings, then I hung the stockings on the 24th and made them laugh. I hope 2013 is filled with love and blessings for you and yours.
Lovely gallery of memories! I love the homeliness of it too. it feels safe and warm.
