Well, 2011 is almost over. I have no good or bad feelings about the year (although my hip surgery was pretty cool). It was a year of trying to pay down debt and trying to be productive in our jobs. It was a year of singing in the choir and influencing the youth of today (guess who did which of those – ha!). It was a year of poetry for both of us. It was a year of many many many pictures which brought us much joy. I’m kind of hoping that 2012 brings more of the same (minus the surgery).
So, Happy New Year to you & yours!
P.S. Since week one of this year had just one day in it we’ve ended up with an “extra” week. I’ve decided to call it Week Fifty-Two Too, because it sure ain’t week one of 2012. Of course, I could do like I did last year & call it Week 53 – ha!

Merry Christmas – again! I shared a couple of pictures from this day last week, but decided to put a
bunch more on this week’s post too. First up, Christmas birds! Dr. M took these
pictures at my dad’s house.
Another picture of my gift from Dr. M – I’m loving the Burt’s Bees stuff.
My sister-on-law gave Dr. M this sheep pez dispenser, which he hooked on his rear view mirror. Now he really does have sheep wherever he goes. This is my first unsuccessful attempt at a picture – did you know that things dangling from rear view mirrors move while the car is moving?
These are from the sing-along at Dr. M’s uncle & aunt’s house. The State of the Bug – caroling!

Rasta sheep. I really love how sheep always stare when you take their picture. To see more sheep and other pictures, check out Dr. M’s blog post here – you’ll enjoy it, promise!
Check out this post to find out what this picture is all about.

Driving back to Ohio today – and guess what we saw?
My second unsuccessful attempt to take a picture of the pez sheep – isn’t it cool?

A squirrel picture for Ellen.

Dr. M documented some interesting sparrow activity today. Aren’t these about the coolest pictures ever?
Click on the picture below to enlarge it - go ahead - it's just such a great shot (to me anyway):

Synchronized squirrels – too cute.
The Tax Time Pig is tired!
As I was leaving work I saw a double rainbow, which basically “followed” me all the way home – and then I saw the ends of a full rainbow when I drove into town. Fabulous! Of course, I couldn’t get a great picture of any of the phenomena…
Saturday, December 31st – The Last Day of the Year
I plan to go put a poem in a shop later this afternoon, but I’ll do a separate post for that. For now, here are a couple of pictures from this morning. Our little tree has attracted quite the following lately!
And, finally, a decent picture of the pez sheep. I know that you were hoping that I’d get one. Ha!
Go to Sara’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. We also take pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. This is the camera that the Bug uses most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
