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.
