Yes, I say this every year, but I really mean it this time.
I do, I really do.
However, since we live in a democracy, let's let you decide.
Here's some picture evidence of our last 48 hours....see for yourself.
|Presley and me practicing on my new Nikon camera. ignore my wrinkles and focus on the beauty to the left.|

|William gives us his best smolder...and it's a good one|
|and Danny is still showing us his tonsils again....much to Joseph's chagrin|
|Jess and me....i love this girl...and not because i have to because she's Lem's twin...but because you just can't help but love this one.|
