i know i know i am a bad blogger. i have not updated at all over christmas. it has been really busy around here getting ready for christmas, and then cleaning up the aftermath of the holiday. today i am trying to start getting back in the groove before work starts back on thursday. i try to take a week or longer off each year over the holiday and it is always hard to get started backup so i figured i would start a day or two earlier this year. when i am off from work and on vacation i don’t get online much. i check my email a few times a day and that is it. i take a vacation from the computer. that is the most important part of vacation taking a break from the computer. ayden got some fun presents one of the best being a new camera. i am going to post some picutres he has taken. he really likes taking picutures of stuff and showing them to people.
