Well, the holiday season has crept up on us, which is especially hard to believe if you have stepped outside any time in the past 24 hours. We had our toes in the Lake Michigan water yesterday. But we live in the Midwest, so that doesn't mean it can't snow tomorrow (Please don't let it snow tomorrow.).
