Dearest family and friends,

Shamus-2010.12.15Put on your pajamas, whip up some hot chocolate, and kick back while we spend some special time together. And, if you leave a note below, we can even have a little fireside chat! (There’s a story there about how the tradition of our Christmas tree trunk collection began.)

As we mentioned in our 2009 holiday letter, from now on we’ll forgo traditional cards and share our favorite moments of the season here.

The joy and laughter Tim and I shared making this greeting for you will live on in our hearts and memories forever. For that we thank you and sincerely hope you enjoy it too.

Wishing you many fond memories of years past,
and the making of bright, shiny new ones
in the coming year!

Peace, love and joy to you
this season and always,


Kim and Tim,
Shamus, Emmett, Jackson, Jed
& the birds
