A very Merry Christmas to everyone.
Even though it was all uncertainty for awhile, though our youngest daughter didn't give up hope in the face of repeated cross examination and skepticism from her father, Santa Clause visited our humble square of air and brought us all presents.
Of course, we have jumped the gun on it all. Christmas here isn't until January 7th. But Ded Moroz. Ukraine's Santa Claus, comes on January 1st. So we are ahead of the Christmas season wave here. The kids don't mind it though--not one bit.
