This is me, Mannie, celebrating my first "Holidaze" with my new family.  Looking back over the past 9 months since we met, I don't know who is happier, them or me.  All I know is that it was meant to be!!

My wish for you for the New Year is happiness, health and contentment.

I have visited this spot many times this season waiting for the color change.  For me the wait was worth it.
