We have been in the habit of doing family portraits every other year, and earlier this year we looked forward to doing so with a little baby in the mix. The year has come and gone and we have no baby, and we also have no family portraits. Or a Christmas tree, for that matter, which is something we'd done every year but just never got around to doing this year.
But it's still Christmas, and there's still much to be merry about, including and especially another little baby, who was not born when or where he was expected to be born, and continues to take the world by surprise by the way he lived, died, came back, ascended, lives on, and prepares to return. It is in that spirit that we say: Merry Christmas to all, from the Huangs.
