It has been so long since I have blogged. I have taken a much needed respite since the death of my father to just do some thinking and trying to get caught up on the much needed routines of life. I hope to be back on a more regular basis now. There is so much to catch everyone up on! The family is currently all well and we have had a great holiday season. We will be telling you all more about that in the following posts. Jonathan is currently on leave until the fifth of January and we are all enjoying quality time with him. I did not get Christmas cards off this year, but instead will be posting some pictures of the family on upcoming posts for all of you to see. We hope all our family and friends had a wonderful holiday season. It was difficult for us, this being the first Christmas without Dad, but we are still rejoicing in the celebration of the birth of Christ. Let us hear from you all...feel free to leave a comment and let us know how all of you are doing too. We love hearing from you all!
