    Is it strange that after about 3 months away from photography, this is what inspired me to pick up my camera? This was taken through the kitchen window and storm window, so it's not the greatest, but I couldn't resist! We've been watching these squirrels since they were babies, and this one just opened up the birdfeeder and climbed right in. I guess when you're hungry, you're hungry!

    And not unlike my squirrel friend, I'm going to dive in too...(back into photography though, not the birdfeeder :smile: )! After a rough few months, life has gotten much better for us. Many thanks to those of you who PM'd and said prayers and kept positive thoughts for my daughter. She had surgery the day before Thanksgiving and is finally fully recovered. She's back to tearing up the soccer field, pirouetting across the dance floor and begging me for horseback riding lessons. So far, the surgery has been a huge success and her health is much improved. We have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season!

    So my holiday plan is to get to know my camera again so I can rejoin the cafe and maybe take a good photo or two! I'm looking forward to it!
  2. Welcome back, Sommer, and what a cute little friend.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.
  3. Welcome back Sommer. I did not know of your Daughter's issues, but am delighted at what you just said.
    Neat story on the squirrel!

    Welcome back, Sommer. It is great to hear the Melissa is doing well after her surgery and that she is an active young lady again. I hope that the worst is well behind her now and that each day forward is filled with joy and laughter. I can only imagine that this Christmas will be more special because Melissa is feeling herself again. Happy Holidays!
