The lovely choir ladies, all highly amused by one of Joannamauselina's witty remarks.
The Doors of Mercy on Christmas afternoon.
And home to dinner with Mr Cash! He loves to give high-fives, hugs, kisses, and fist-bumps.
He is very fair and always gives a fist-bump to both aunties.
The manger scene.
One of the firemen who hurried to the rescue with axes when a crazy person pulled the fire alarm before the Vigil Mass.
One of our little servers carried the Christ Child in procession at the Night Mass. Which started at 10pm! YAAAAY! Merry Christmas!

We all thought it was just great. Six thumbs up. Everyone who gave up on the franchise after Episodes I, II, and III should give it another chance.

The annual Smithlin tea... The most talked-about event of the holiday season.
Here is the beautiful bowl of fruit artfully arranged on a Durham tea towel which I completely forgot to share.
Some photo ops with Hairy who loves the Smiths dearly in spite of the expression in his face.
Smothered with love and cuddles.
Christmas cracker crowns, of course. It turns out E knows every joke. You can tell her the beginning of virtually any joke there is, and she can fill in the rest.
Tommy disappeared at photo time... For some reason....

Last night was all about lights. So was tonight!
Lights downtown before we headed to the zoo for zoo lights.
Zizi and Sage.
Excited to ride the carousel!
Wondering when it will start moving:
A baby bear so cute that even at the Woodland Park Zoo there can't have been many cuter ones:

The Year of Mercy has begun! This afternoon we launched the help desk, which will be staffed by volunteers on weekdays for anyone with questions. It was amazing how many people stopped by.
The Year of Mercy banner arrived and it is wonderful!
After Mass we donned halos and waited...
...for the lights!
Rosanne took this picture of me looking like an angel (she said). More like a drowned whelp.
Happy Jubilee to all and to all a good night!
