The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.

Happy 2013, and safe travels.

Lo, in the silent night
A child to God is born
And all is brought again
That ere was lost or lorn.

Could but thy soul, O man, 

Become a silent night!
God would be born in thee
And set all things aright.

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down on a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night."

We tried again!  Why?  I don't know!  Tripods and remote shutters.  Blah!  Will someone please take our picture?

I love this one.  As I was sorting the photos, the kids walked by and one said, "Aggg, I can't believe you guys were kissing the the back and we didn't even notice it!  Ewww!"  Comments like that just make us want to smooch some more.

Have I ever mentioned that it's brutal to take your own family pics with a tripod?  Not my favorite way of taking pictures.  At least we are all smiling!  One year I need to have someone come and actually take our pics for me.

We have some hawks on our property.  They woke me up the other morning.  Who knew they could be so loud?

Do you know what this is?

It's a manatee!  Closest relation is the elephant.  Gentle giant.  No enemies except the props on our boats.  Slow down and watch for manatees.

I think it's an Eastern Spiny Softshell Turtle, but I could be wrong.  He is not the most attractive turtle I've seen (that honor belongs to the chocolate, caramel, pecan delight that I love so much).  He was in the back yard and kept putting his head up as if he was sniffing for the water.  He headed straight for the pond then swam away.
