As another year comes to a close I thought I'd post a few of my favorite photos from the holidays (and yes, they all feature the kids). We will be celebrating the coming of 2010 in our traditional way, with dinner at home, kids in bed by 8:30, followed by a movie, and possibly seeing the clock turn to 12:00 (at least somewhere in the world it will be midnight when we go to sleep.) Not everyone's idea of excitement but it works for us!
