Happy Holidays

The whirlwind that is Christmas is now over and we are relaxing among boxes and bags, tissue paper and tiny pieces of wire that keep toys in their places, and coffee, lots of coffee. My eyes want to close and Brian’s back and tummy are sore from the shellfish he accidentally ingested at a family…
