Merry Christmas from Minnesota

We had a wonderful Christmas with Ryan's family. The only blemish on the day was the absence of Greg and Lauren. We "tele-Christmased" with them via iChat; our thoughts and prayers and with them and the twins (please...don't come yet!)

I spent the two days following Christmas engrossed in The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield. I utterly enjoyed it. It would be a great book club read.

We head back to the real world tomorrow, and we will celebrate with the Harmans. I can't wait to see Jamie AND Kimmy!

It's begining to look a lot like...

Because we will be spending Christmas in Minnesota this year, I nearly didn't decorate. But one thing led to another, and before I knew it I had everything up. And I'm glad I did. It makes it easier to get into the spirit of the season.

We had a fantastic time in Mexico. Couldn't have asked for more--except a few more days of vacation! Here are a few pictures.
