Seasons Greetings

Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and warm wonderful times with family & friends.
I am leaving work around noon to head home and get the car packed. We are heading down to PA tonight and then down to VA for Christmas Day. We'll be back up here Monday evening. Kind of a whirlwind trip but I don't have any vacation time so it is the best we can do. To tell the truth it is actually less stressful this year to hop from house to house then to host everyone in our home. I hope Keegan does well in the car now that he is more mobile. I guess we'll have to factor in some rest stops specifically to let him stretch his legs.

Safe travels to everyone else going to other homes or expecting guests at yours!

PS I know we broke some kind of cardinal law by not sending out Christmas cards complete with Keegan's picture. But I just couldn't find a free minute. Maybe next year when he hopefully isn't getting sick as much and I am not submerged in a new job.
