Sorry for the absence in posting. I was a little overwhelmed by all of the photos I wanted to post, so I kept procrastinating. Well, the holidays were good. There was much eating and gathering of family. Because John is a teacher and I am freelancing now, we were able to spend a good chunk of time in Illinois visiting friends and my family. Then it was back to Nebraska to celebrate with John's family. It was a much needed break for both of us, and getting back to work is hard. Enough of that, you want pictures!!
