I don't have much else to say other than that. We've been spending a lot of time with grandma and grandpa, great-grandma, and the great-aunts. Think, "Gwamma, will you play Star Wars guys with me?" or, "Gwampaaaaa!" [insert frenzied snuggling here] and, "Gweat-Gwamma, I founds lots 'n lots of moths outside last night!" etc. That, and being serenaded by, "Life is Like a Mountain Railroad" by my grandma.
[For Ashlik: "woof-woof, boom-boom - merry christmas, happy new year"]
Tru-babes [or "Do", as Diego calls him] has started a few new tricks, like throwing and hitting. Think lots of, "Maaaamaaaa...Do hit me!" Oh dear... It doesn't help that Diego can be heard, on the presumed-sly, saying, "Do! Hit me!" Too tantalizing.
We are getting the house ready for my brother's wedding next weekend. The ceremony and reception is going to be right here, at my parents' place. It should be lovely. I am really looking forward to it. And my new(ish) SIL. Awwww, shucks. What a gal. I'm quite fond. I just went to her bachelorette party last night and watched her "pin the junk on the hunk"; though she was the last to go, and, instead, pinned her junk on another previously-pinned-junk. Ha! It was fun to see her outside of a family event. I learned quite a bit of interesting tidbits about my brother, too. (Another HA!) It was fun.
And now, adieu.
