Wow! So much is going on at your house! At first I thought you were trying to say YOU grew a beard, but the photo explained things. I think he looks handsome. But then, my husband has a beard, so I am prejudiced. Congrats on everything! Your family is getting bigger every day. :) Can't wait to see the etsy shop!! xox Pam

Yeah, so glad you are back and with such fun and beautiful photos!! Daniel sometimes grows a beard - I'm with you, not a huge beard fan on my hubby!

Well, and I see that congrats are in order for the happy couple and for you with your Etsy shop!! Way to go!!!

I AM a little worried about kitty and the plastic bags...

Much love, Silke

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said... is moving on so beautifully in your house...well maybe not so much for Kitty...he'd better find a new hobby!

I am soooo not going there where the beard is concerned....unless it's you that wants to grow one.Then I'd say no.But that's just me...
Congrats to the happy couple.Happy times ahead for your family.

It's been a BIG year for your, and the new kitchen was the least of it! Awww, Deborah, I'm SO very excited and happy for you all. A big congratulations to your beautiful daughter. And SQUEALZ for the new shop!

And I'm sorry, but I think the new beard is handsome. I know what you mean, though. Besides, a smooth face is nicer to snuggle against.

Is that Sean Connery with his arm around you? What a beautiful couple. Great photo of the happy new couple, I guess that is your daughter? Very cute shot, that will go into the family archives no doubt. I will wait for word on your Etsy, you go girl!!
