My Father's Daughter

Houseguests are on their way, the house isn't clean yet, and I thought, "What better time to go through some pictures?" One of my all-time favorite pictures of my dad sits framed in my den. He was madly in love with Christmas, and, more importantly, he was madly in love with me.

Imagine my delight when I found this picture on our camera from Christmas day.
I'll be back when the houseguests leave! Happy New Year!
