First and foremost, I hope that everyone had a joyous holiday season in 2008. 2008 was certainly a bumpy year for the US and the world at large.
For Gillian and me the holiday season was quite busy between visiting friends, family, and getting ready for yet-to-be-named baby boy Parton. That's right we are expecting our first little one, and are ecstatic. He's due in May, so we've been busy get the house ready, looking into day care centers, etc. We know we are in for changes, and while we can anticipate many of them, I'm sure we are still in for plenty of surprises.
