Happy New Year... and Goodbye!

After four years and over 1,400 posts - with perhaps two or three missed - The Critter says "Thank You" to our Dear Readers for accompanying us (at least virtually) on this journey. We have all grown in significant ways (the Little Engineer, most obviously). If you want evidence of that, and are curious about why he's in this particular outfit, turn back to post #1, January 1, 2011.

As we end Chase-a-Day, we shall break one of our strictest rules: only one picture per day. We started 2015 by walking down to our neighborhood beach this morning. We hope that you all will join us there later this year, when the warm sea breezes bring the sweet ocean aroma to our door.

With love, Joanna, Chase, & Reed

New Year's Eve

The Dyer-Payne trifecta hopes you had as wonderful a 2014 as we did.

A Moment of Silence

Chase, James and Estelle enjoy one quiet moment among a very loud afternoon of playing.

Splash Town

There's no end to The Critter's creative play in the bath. He sure loves tubby time.

Grandma Wins!

Our little dolphin enjoyed a long swim in Grandma and Grandpa's hotel pool. He made sure that Grandma was the winner go the "guess which number Chase was going to swim to game". We think this is the beginning of a long lasting camaraderie between Ace and Gma.

We are so grateful for the love of our family, near and far.

Christmas Wonder

We started the day with Nanna and Papa, Auntie Katie, Uncle Jean, James, and Estelle. We finished the day with Grandma and Grandpa. Filled with family and gifts, Ace cannot believe his good fortune this holiday season. Not even Emperor Zurg can curb his Woody-like excitement.

We love Christmas - and thank you all for making it so wonderful for our Little Critter.
