We were all very eager to spend Christmas in Dallas. August to December is a long stretch when it is spent in Almaty. (Yes, we did have a week in Israel but it's just not the same thing.) Maybe it was because Frank spent so much time in the US this fall and we were all longing to be there. Anyway...we had a very enjoyable Christmas and were happy that Frank flew 48 hours to spend 48 hours with us between Dec 24 and Dec 26. Here are the photos.
