That’s right,to great grandma and grandpa’s house we go went! This was the baby’s first visit to upstate New York. I’m not sure what was fuller for me, my heart or my belly. Probably both.

I’ve spent so much time at their house that I quit seeing the items that made it so warm and comforting. She’s practically wallpapered her home with photos of her children and grandchildren. Nearly every corner has some reference to an angel, a cross, or God. She’s the most adorable little Catholic grandmother you’ve ever seen. And when you put her with her husband, the pair is irresistible.

That last picture right there? A photo of my mom and her sister. There is nothing better than seeing photos of your parents as children. Hope you had a great holiday and are all rested for the new year. 2013, here we come!
