Belated Christmas post

Xmastree As usual my Christmas post is a few days late.  But here I am complete with our Christmas update, pictures and all. :)

Had a nice Christmas, opened our gifts with Mike's sister Kristina and her two "kids" Shannon (19) and Erik (17). I can't believe how old they already are. Definitely not in the kid category anymore. We had fun opening our gifts. Mike got me the most awesome gifts. A Kindle (for those of you not familiar with it, it's a wireless reading device, click here to read more about it), a digital photo frame and a book showcasing the 1000 best off the beaten path-trips all around the world. I will put our vacation pictures on the digital frame on my desk. I have a feeling I will never want to work again. :) Besides that I received tea, a tea mug, shower gel, lotion, ornaments and other fun little knick knacks,

Work has been very busy. The holiday season is always crazy, so much to plan and organize. I am short handed next week as someone is off on vacation so let's see how that will go. I guess it will be ok as it always is one way or another.
Tomorrow we have tickets to see the NY String Orchestra at Carnegie Hall. I am looking forward to that. It's always fun to go to Carnegie Hall and see a performance there. Plus the tickets were really cheap, only $9 and we even got pretty good seats.
On January 2nd we have tickets to a play on Broadway ("In the Next Room"). I am looking forward to that as well. Will be nice to see something on Broadway again. Haven't been in a while.
So all in all we are keeping busy. No real plans for New Year's Eve. I think we will just have a mellow one this year. Will see what happens. Might go out for dinner and then come home and watch the ball drop on TV at home.

Mail update. Letters are going out tomorrow to: Celia/MA and Lotte/Denmark. Received letters from/still owe replies to: Becki/KY, Kimber/Canada, Charles/TN and Nina/WA.

I hope you enjoyed the NY String Orchestra. I'd love to have been there. But we practically never come in to NYC
