Sorry about the general lack of posts, as the mother has already mentioned, I was quite busy with the finals, and after them I just didn't feel like it. So...Christmas was great! We had many many people at our house on Christmas Eve, making the traditional Christmas Eve program that Tara and I do much more awkward than usual. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, here is a brief overview of the Christmas Eve programs thus far:

By Christmas day everyone had left except for Mike Allbright who spent christmas with us, you may have recognized him in the video.

Here's the aftermath.



between Christmas and New Year's there were very few postworthy events with the Griersons aside from one spectacular sunset,... ...but I suppose that's kind of boring.


For New Year's Eve, we again had many many people over. We did the traditional fondue,...

...which was delicious as always, then played all manner of games until midnight.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I know we haven't posted anything for a long time. Spencer is in the middle of finals and as he said, he is, "Stressed to the point of physical illness". Here is a picture of him writing one of his many papers. Everyone say, "Ahhhhhhh", like you are feeling sorry for him. There. Thanks. I'm sure that will make him feel better.













Since he has been otherwise occupied, I decided to write a post so my blog is not super boring like some others I know who haven't posted in over a week. Here are some pictures of my real gingerbread house, complete with candy windows and a light inside. Spencer is very creative and was the actual designer of the house. I merely built what he told me to build.

Yesterday we saw reindeer with Holly. Today she had a baby.
