Into the New Year


The holidays are officially over.

What do we have to show for it?

A wonderful Christmas with my brother and Gracie finally getting the concept of tearing at wrapping paper.

She did decide to start climbing the many large presents sent to her by Grandparents though, after getting tired just two presents into the pile.

A decadent New Years Eve. OK, Matt and I did go to bed at 10:30 on New Years, but hey, you have to be practical. That did not hinder our dinner of giant fillet mignon, shrimp that tasted just like lobster and two bottles of champagne though.

A holiday party with the best people we know. Due to the rescheduling, a good portion of our friends were still out to town, but the crowd that came was fantastic and delightfully low key.

So low key in fact, that pants were optional.

Well, only if you were age three or younger. Were pretty open, but don’t roll quite like that.

Now, things will slow down, right?

Oh, except for my parents flying out here this Thursday-Sunday, Matt & Grace flying back to Chicago the Friday after through Monday, then Matt's Uncle and cousins coming to visit the weekend after that.

How does February look for slowing down??
