Merry Christmas, all my friends and visitors to the blog. We will be away on a 3-day vacation to Kerala starting today. Santa visited the kids a day early, since we will be waking up in the train tomorrow morning. They didnt seem too happy with their gifts, especially Ash. That is something I need to tackle - there are so many toys around them that nothing seems good enough. When we were growing up, the gifts were so few and far between that we treasured each. Stay happy!
