John says I should do a smarty-pants dance. But I'll just gloat. At noon today we walked out of the post office here at Valley del Oro and all of our Christmas packages and all of our Christmas letters were in the mail. Wow! Does that ever feel good. For the rest of the month, we can relax and have fun. We have worked hard at shopping and making gifts, writing the letter, printing labels, etc, etc, etc. Now we are done.
