Back from the Holidays

We’re back home from the holidays, maybe a touch worse for the wear – but only by flying with a head cold. Visiting the family for Christmas and heading out to Rhode Island and visiting friends for the New Years was a delight.Of course, there’s a few family photos:

Dan and I made it about half-way through HALO3 on Legendary (he’s very good at head shots with a battle rifle), and I even managed to get up to Iowa to visit my grandmother for a day.
