Christmas was mass confusion as usual: Loads of people, presents, food, drink, and zaniness.
Here's my wish that your holiday season is as happy and full as mine has been. I had the good fortune of having all my kids home for a few days: Liz arrived home from Philly on 12/18, the oldest two descended from DC on the 23rd. Now the older two are back in their regular lives again, and Liz will stay to enjoy her semester break until she leaves us on January 9. Claire's break ends on January 8, so at least she'll be able to enjoy a little time with her sister (and us.)
Happy New Year, everyone!
