Nice photos Tim... Your extended family gatherings remind me what my family misses being so spread out across the land.

We missed the ice, but have had two back to back snow storms.

Your family time throughout the year is one of the best I have ever seen, Tim. Congratulations. Never lose those habits and memories!!

Four square. I can remember playing that when I went to camp in Pennsylvania when I was a youngster.

Looks like a great holiday so far, Tim. Happy New Year to you and your family!

A blur ? For me it was a dream.... Sometimes life flows so quickly. We played too. We cooked. We were 21 persons at a moment. I had all my chidren with me. It was great as it seems have been for you.
Holly berry ! I had to search in my dictionnary and I found ! Ours has perennial leaves, it is why I did not recognize it ! And more it usually grows alone in a forest
:)
I almost asked you if it tastes good.

Happy New Year for all your family Tim ! And especially for you and your lovely wife

It was the 20th of December, not yet Winter and now we are on the first day of Spring.
I hope you and your wife and all family enjoy the beautiful flowers, the nice and sweet weather. Remember, it was 3 years ago : I came for the first time on your blog. I still have in lmy memory the pink flowers of cherry trees along the streets. And ducks. And so on...
I found your pictures so beautiful and for then you even made great progress
Cheers, Tim...

Hey Tim. Well....I've not posted anything in a while either! I've been doing an online alternative certification coarse to get my Texas teacher's certification. Between that and working full time I've not had much time to do any blogging. How are you doing? Pretty sad that I couldn't remember my password when I went to log on now and had to do so anonymously! This is Charley from "Soar" and "An Eagle's View".
