Jen is taking down the tree which signifies the official end of the Christmas season here at the VanOort house. It is sad when the tree comes down because that means I have to head back to work soon and my next major vacation to look forward too isn't until July. I guess I still have nearly a week of vacation left but instead of looking towards Christmas I'm looking towards a ton of work I pushed off until January 4th. Oh well I guess that's just part of the deal. We are going to go one day this week to the river museum in Dubuque so the boys can have some fun before Marsh has to head back to school.
