one of the upsides to having typepad eat your password and refuse to let you into your blog for several weeks is that, if you're real lucky, someone else will have already posted all the pictures and stories that you meant to blog and save you the time and effort.
so, for the detailed, with pictures, version of the holidays chez heatherly, hightail it over to sam's corner of the interwebs por favor. now that typepad seemingly no longer hates me, i'll get my act together soon and update this beeyatch with actual content. i really will. pinkie swear.
