10 Great Reasons why there is STILL no Christmas update posted yet…

I know many of you have asked me personally about the different events we had at Christmas and, yes, I am STILL compiling the pictures and getting the update done…But in the meantime, here are some snapshots of what has happened since those events, which, in my humble opinion are some great excuses for why I haven’t typed it up yet…
