I hope that you are having a great holiday. I have been traveling all over the Midwest by car; first to see my husbands family, parents, his children, and to meet the first grandson. Now I am in Wisconsin visiting my family and things are crazy here. My family is quite large with all the kids, parents, and grandchildren; currently staying at my moms are 14 people, and four dogs. The schedules are crazy, people coming in and out. Unfortunately we did have a tragedy, my brother in laws mother fell ill on Christmas and passed away(the cycle of life: a birth and a death), many members of the family are leaving to travel to today, to attend the mass and funeral and some of us have to say behind to watch the children and the dogs.
If things are quite for a few days here you will know why. I am still following all of your blogs and thinking about you as we near the new year!
