random thoughts, but Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

What a crazy/fun time of year!!

We spend Christmas with so many people, it's almost New Year's and we still have more Christmas to do! How fun! It is so great to see so many people, I wish we could get together more often!

I think we're going to have a quiet New Years, just the two of us. Everything has been so busy lately, it'll be nice to sit and do nothing together!

Went to Buca Di Beppo's for dinner with my cousins, throwing this in here because it was soooo gooood!! if anyone has one nearby, or on vacation or something, definitely go. Family style Italian food. giant bowls full, meatballs the size of softballs! no exaggeration!!

My sister is at 29 weeks, due very soon! she is soo cute too! Mom and I are planning her shower, it's so fun! She may have gestational diabetes, but she is going to get tested again. her first test was the day after Christmas, and we all ate more sugar than you could ever imagine that day, so it should be better this next time. She said she goes again on the 5th, so she's being really good until then!

Did I ever say she and Scott are having a boy? They are decorating his room in airplanes, it's so cute! Steve and I have bought so much stuff, baby clothes and stuffed animals are very hard to pass up. but hey, it's my sister, i'm aloud to spoil!

Saw Grandma at Christmas Eve. She is having a lot of mini strokes, but other than that, she really looked great. She is easier to understand now too, very quiet and short sentences, but makes more sense.

think that's it for now!
I'll try to get better at these updates! Going to Atlanta for work in January, so I'll be gone just a little while....everyone take care! Happy New Year!
