Where did this past year go? We will try to show how we spent part of it in pictures.
When we get home again the interior finishing awaits us. Shirley has most of the walls painted... but there are floors to lay and a staircase to the loft to build. Will it ever end? I doubt it.
This next year the original house will get repainted and in places new shingle siding too.

maybe Christmas means a little bit more..."
-Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas
From our house to yours we wish you all the very best Christmas possible... and may 2013 be the best year yet for you.
May the Lord bless and keep you, ALWAYS.
May the Lord make His light shine upon you, ALWAYS.
And be gracious to you, ALWAYS.
May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, ALWAYS...
And give you peace.
