What is a Holiday Glog?!

Many of you may have received last year's installment of our holiday glog...
http://blog.lib.umn.edu/jrock2/grog/

It's a rambling archive of our family's activities over the previous year. And our 2010 GLOG is served with an extra dollop of chagrin, due to it's late delivery... but just under the wire of Twelfth Night. (whew!)

So, If you haven't already had your fill of status postings and flicker galleries, read on...

2009 began...

The year began with a charming trip to the Bay Area
