Dear Readers, please forgive me for being away so long. December is always such a busy month. After taking my trip to California, I have been busy with the business of Christmas. Cards, gifts, special meetings with dear friends, etc. Mark took vacation this week which was a real treat. We had a couple of dates and had so much fun. So much fun that I neglected the duties of Christmas. So a few things fell by the wayside. Oh well. I think we all will survive. Below are some pictures of Mark and I enjoying the season.
