We had a pleasant holiday season -- I trust you can say the same --- with a stop at Meijer Gardens to check out their holiday decorations, a nice quiet Christmas morning with Susan's mom and a Christmas dinner in Rockford at the home of Laurie and Garret Ten Have-Chapman, one of Susie's cousins. Lots of good food, warm conversation and incredibly happy people.
