Merry, Merry!

Holiday "Photo Shoot"

Just a few days to go before Santa comes calling, and we (especially the 6-year-old) are getting pretty excited around here. . . . 

So, as it's almost Christmas, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite pictures from our recent holiday "photo shoot." Kendra received her first pet - a baby crested Gecko - for her birthday in September so this year, "Gecky" is making his first appearance too. . . can you spot the little one in the picture? Yep, that's him . . .

On her finger
On top of the candy cane
Taking his "close up"
Cheeky Gecko! (That's something I never thought I'd say!) 

And this year's Christmas Card winner? . . . 

Merry Christmas from our home to yours!

"Christmas, my child, is love in action. 
Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas."
--Dale Evans Rogers

I wish you the happiest Holiday memories and the sweetest Christmas surprises. 

Until next year,
Kristin xo

Kendra is such a beautiful little girl and these photos are adorable. The grass is so green there. It will be months before I see green again outside. Thanks for visiting my blog and your encouragement. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
