Christmas Time in the Stephenson Home

MERRY CHRISTMAS! All caps were needed because I love Christmas, and I wanted to shout it. I was so excited about my tree this year because I made cinnamon ornaments, and that looked fantastic. Geoff received a nice little friend from my sister Rachael, for Christmas. I brought him home, and he was in awe by the tree lights. We are still in need for a name. Gill? An homage to What About Bob would be great. But it is Geoff's fish. I'll let him decide.
