Merry Christmas 2013 and Happy New Year 2014

Betty and Kern in Davis, Michael in transit from Corpus Christi TX to New River NC (and eventually San Diego), and Kate and David and Jackson and Jaron in San Diego send you the very warmest wishes for this holiday season.

Below you will find the now-traditional slideshow of our family's year. It takes about five minutes; you can also click in the lower left corner of the slideshow screen to go and browse one-by-one.
