Hi Frankie. We had a good holiday. I'm happy to not have to go back to teaching for another week. The boys are back in school. We are enjoying our new puppy, "Balta." She is an all black cocker. Sooooooooo cute. Noah would love her. Happy New Year to you and Jill and Noah. I hope 2009 is an improvement over 2008. Hey, post a picture of a cutter instead of your portrait. Maybe I can get all U of I folks to do the same! Hugs, Billie
