Year In Review

It’s the Temple version of a holiday card…

If for some reason you didn’t get it via email, here it is: our 2012 holiday photo greeting, brought to you thanks to Lisa’s neurotic habit of Flickr photo archiving.



And, I might add, it was put together in a wee bit of a rush in a coffee house in Chester, because we’ve been snowed in at Trent’s parents’ without power for most of the Christmas week (talk about a white Christmas, but more about that later!). Still, I managed to get it out before the end of the year!

How’s that for obsessive compulsive?

Okay — off to get a million other things done before they kick me out of this place. Really, the photos say it all, and you probably already read about most of it here, anyway.

Great year. Bring on the next one!

The Holiday Things

This Christmas Spirit Train keeps a-rollin’…

In addition to trees and lights and stockings and stuff, our house is now decked out with ALL the Christmas things. Including a bright red poinsettia on the dining table.


Our perfect Christmas poinsettia! The things are complete.

It’s so pretty! And red. And Christmassy. 🙂

This is going to be the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny f#@$ing Kaye!

PS — Thanks for completing our collection of all the Christmas things, Dicky and Majella…

All hail the holidays!

Just in case you really thought I was a scrooge, I just have to say —

Man, I love this time of year. All of a sudden, reason and responsibility are a thing of my past.

What?! There’s nothing unreasonable about a unicorn in a snuggie!

10,000 imported Italian twinkle lights!
