Merry Christmas 2009 and Happy New Year 2010

Betty and Kern in Davis, Kate and David and Jackson and Leah in San Diego, and Michael in Reno send you the very warmest wishes for this holiday season.

Below you will find a slideshow of what was by any measure an action-packed year, a couple of UCDSO audio files for your holiday pleasure, and three videos -- one of them a Holiday Special for the great-grandchildren. The slideshow takes six minutes if it's loading well; you can also click in the lower left corner of the slideshow screen to go and browse one-by-one.
