Happy Holidays!

Well, so Christmas Eve, Christmas, Hanukkah, and Boxing Day have all passed, but New Year's Eve and Day have yet to pass, so I'm still on time. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! I hope everyone got to spend time with family and friends, or will soon. It certainly makes for an excellent beginning to the New Year.

For Jim and myself, we have spent the past several days in Iowa with the Van Fleets. We've had great fun spending time with the family, eating lots, playing games, watching movies, and just hanging out. Thank you for a wonderful Christmas, Jane, Alanson, and Ib!!!

We leave tomorrow for Charlotte, where we'll go back to work for a few days, then head to Fredericksburg to do "Christmas for New Years" with my family. I am excited to see them, since it's been a while (we saw Mom and Bob at Thanksgiving, but haven't seen Ryan or Melysa since Easter!). I miss my family a bunch lately, so I am super excited to see them! (Note to family: You are ALWAYS welcome to visit us in Charlotte!!! That would be so nice!)

We'll be visiting Richmond people on the way to the 'Burg too, which will be fun! We'll also get to visit with Marta and her family while in Fredericksburg, then we'll get to see all of the Barretts at Sammy's 1st birthday party in Staunton, on our way back to CLT. I am excited about seeing so many people, even if it is packed into only a few days...

My New Year's resolution is to get Blogger working well with my iPhone, so that I can blog directly from my phone. Right now, I am having some issues...

Here's to making 2010 (saying "twenty ten" will save years off your life apparently--haha, not really) a year of peace, love, and togetherness.

Our Nativity scene in Charlotte. This was my Grandmother's set that was given to me.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care!
