I'm sorry for the long pause between blog posts. I have been busy with all the normal holiday activities--cooking, eating, wrapping, unwrapping, making messes, cleaning them up, waking early, going to bed late, and so on, and so on. We had a nice Christmas in spite of illness. Daniel and Caleb came down with dengue fever a week ago and are both still recovering. Things should be back to normal in another day or two. I'll write more then. I hope that you had a blessed Christmas and that you are enjoying these last days before the new year.
Heather (for all of us)
