Then we had all the shopping (I use the term "we" with shopping very loosely... Daniel did nothing) that went along with with buying gifts for 20 people and distributing them over 5 Christmas celebrations including one for 18 people at my house. This year, we moved the buffet table to the back of the dining room so there was no chance for disaster like the 2008 version. Success!
After Christmases, Ben and Kate stayed in Austin for another few/many days and we had New Years at the casa again... and again, this year's version of the party was much tamer.
Finally, I started working for my grandparents' a few weeks ago and have been fairly swamped with that ever since. SO... that's my update! Nothing earth shattering, but it's been a good few months. I wish I had time to post during the day, but I spend my few free minutes checking all YOUR blogs instead! But I'll try to keep it up more regularly.
