We are back from our Christmas travels. It was a good time, spending Christmas at the ranch in Wyoming with Mom & Dad & Gene & Elaine and new baby Clay. Then we went to Flagler for a few days to visit Jack & Angie & Emma & Allie. Emma just had her tonsils out, which is why they were not able to travel to Wyoming. She's doing well and should be able to go back to school on Tuesday (much to her dismay).
The top gift* was tickets to San Diego Comic-Con International from Gene and Elaine! Well, Comic-Con tickets aren't available yet, so it's money to buy tickets, but still, we are going to Comic-Con!

*I can say that without hurting anyone's feelings, because that was the only big gift we got since we now give and received gifts from my family on a rotating schedule...
