Good morning...   How was everyone's Christmas and New Year?  Santa was good to us in our house this season.  I got my iPad and my DH got a nice Android Tablet that included a case and keyboard. The kids made out like bandits again, like they always do.

So, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year.....
