Our Holiday

I hope this past holiday season found you all well, and in a state of food, fun and family bliss.  Happily, all our family members remained healthy for the duration of our holiday break, enabling us to truly enjoy each moment of these past two weeks.  Here is a bit of those things we enjoyed as 2013 exited, and 2014 began.
