I must also compliment Diane Cordell for the inspiration for this post! Be sure to see hers! Also, if these pictures generate questions, feel free to ask them. It was just going to take way too long to link info above back to specific posts, but of course most are in the archives, easily navigated from my sidebar. In flickr, this image has notes on each photo. This is be no means all of the highlights, but its enough to write about.
My biggest surprise this year?
My 21 yo son coming home for Christmas break with a complete beard and mustache–I guess the northern climes of Chicago call for it.
