It's not the Hokey Pokey... but that's what it's all about!

Snowball fights, smiles & good times. 

Yup... I'd put my whole body in for that one!

This became abundantly clear to me over the 2010 holidays, when my step-dad of 34 years became ill and passed away. The photographs I have of him over our 34 years as a family, in particular over the last few, are precious heirlooms that I am able to share with all of our family, both near and far.
