So Christmas 2009 was not a total bust, if using the crowded Target parking lot yesterday afternoon as a guide.

We had a fun Christmas Eve…a Christmas party with friends complete with the kids staging a circus.  On the way home we checked out the lights and luminaries that were pervasive on the North Side, but no so much on the South. That could be some sociologist’s PhD thesis topic.

A fun Christmas morning, a quick trip to a sparsely attended Christmas Day service at a local church and now we’re playing with our new gadgets and waiting for the rain to come this way.

Merry Christmas, everyone.
