Yes, I am slacking on entries again. My excuse is a good one though: I’ve been spending time with family, since it was Christmas and all. Merry belated Christmas to everybody, and Happy Early New Year!

We had a great Christmas and extended weekend with my and Melissa’s parents and siblings. It was great to have everybody together and do all those fun, traditional, Christmassy things. I also managed to squeeze in some errands and other things that needed to be done. It was a good, low-key, enjoyable holiday this year. Very low-stress for once.

Anyway, many thanks to everybody for the great gifts and, more importantly, thanks to God for sending us his son, Jesus Christ, whose birth we celebrate this Christmas season.
