What I did on my Christmas Vacation... a picspam

I'd like to declare the end of 2009 official.  Christmas was great. 
New Year's Eve was good. 
I've been a little up and down,
but I'm looking forward to the coming year, finally. 
And glad the old one is over.  
So come, see some pictures that celebrate all of that.

The ocean invites you ...
