I was pretty happy with Christmas this year. I received some very thoughtful gifts… some things that will be quite useful for my trip (camera, luggage, etc) and some things that will be great for when I come home (bowling shoes, etc).
My brother Justin and his fiancee were in town, and it’s always good to see him. This Christmas is probably the start of big changes in our traditions. He’ll be married in a little more than a week, and I’m sure it won’t be long before I am, too. The family is changing, and that takes getting used to, but it’s been exciting.
