I was inspired by the beauty collective project going on every day at the ten on ten blog and felt challenged to take a photo each and every day for the month of December.  Mostly I just wanted to gather photos for my very own monthly mosaic (perhaps I'll do something similar each month, but I definitely can't keep up with the every day photo taking).

I love looking back at this past month...seeing the touches of christmas; my annual ornament, this year a mustache, sugar cookie making which we delivered to neighbors and visited for a bit (read: didn't get back to our house until after 10pm), visiting friends, wrapping presents, making almond bread, seeing the reindeer at Swanson's, family parties, looking at lights, and then after the holiday celebrating was over we spied a beautiful rainbow on our way home...a reminder of God's covenant with us and a sweet cherry on top of the gift of Jesus...whose birth we celebrate this month!

Some other special highlights this past month: all the wonderful care I received while being sick with tonsilitis (not fun), finishing Harry Potter and getting all caught up on the movies, seeing Anne of Greene Gables with my Gough & Evans ladies, AND the delivery of our eggs to hatch and raise...I will certainly be posting about this little adventure all along the way...but for now, they just look like normal eggs and we're busy turning them 5 times a day and making sure the temperature in the incubator is just right!  This is going to be fun!

Hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year's celebration!  2010 was good to us and although 2011 has started with a nasty little cold for Wes I have a feeling (a hope really) that 2011 will be even better!

Oh and a very happy birthday to my favorite Dad and Wes' favorite Pepe...we LOVE you!

love, jenny

Beautiful mosaic and post you!
Oh, and I wore your hat today...the one you stitched for me years ago with the pom pom on top. A woman thought I was homeless when Callie and I went into a store in downtown DC. It was very Pretty Woman and Callie and I couldn't stop laughing. Thanks for the hobo hat! I didn't need to buy anything in that store anyway ;)
