Happy Holidays

Thursday, January 4th, 2007

Hello All,

I have always loved the Holidays. There’s something about the traditions, the rituals, the excitement, all the trimmings and trappings of what makes this season so special. I get excited about decorating the house and holiday parties. I actually love the mad rush at the malls for gifts.

This is also a time to be serious and reflect about family, friends, faith and events which have and are shaping our lives. I miss being around my family which is of course spread out all over the place. More so now that I’m married. We are lucky that we are going to see almost everyone this year due to my brother-in-law getting married in one week.

Getting back to this now after about two weeks of not writing. We had a wonderful holiday. We saw almost all of our family, except for the Ohio contingent and my mom in Florida. Turner had a wonderful time and was very happy to see his grandparents and uncles again. I wish we could see everyone on a more regular basis but I know that this can not be the case. Ben was able to spend Christmas with us. We had a very nice week and just understand that he can seriously make some good cookies.

I hope all is well with everyone. And know that we want to see you soon.
