Just a quick note to explain the abscence from blogging. I am in the Carolinas visiting family for the holidays and won't be back home until mid-January. My mom has a laptop that is very slow and I have not had access to a good computer for blogging.
My sister and her family are here in the states on a two month sabbatical from their missionary work in London, so Sir Laughsalot and I are extending our trip to spend time with them. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
