Holiday wrap up

This bust of Giovanna Sposa is at my mother's house. She is always decked out for Christmas. 

It's been a wild week around here. Grandma, aunt uncle and a cousin were here with Maggie's brothers and grandpa on Christmas Eve and then we headed over the river and through the woods to grandmothers house (about 4 miles) and visited with more cousins aunts and uncles there on Christmas Day. Maggie got time with Steve's Dad and with my mom as well as many of the cousins.

This week was the first time both my boys were home at the same time in over a year. I finally got a picture just as Eddie and Grace were leaving on Sunday.

Tim and Maggie shot off some nerf rockets while Eddie loaded his car. That was hilarious. 

Maggie was sad that Eddie was leaving until I reminded her that Ms Emily was visiting from Poland, so we had some yucks on Sunday night. 

All this and I've been sick since Christmas Eve. Not flat out in bed sick but the kind where you still do everything but you drag all day and cough all night. It's exhausting.That's nothing compared to health issues other family members are facing. All in all it's been a wild ride.  I'm hoping 2014 starts out healthier for everyone.

And now it's New Year's Eve. Wow. The holidays are drawing to a close. Maggie and I wish everyone a very Happy New Year. I hope 2014 is as good a year for Maggie as this one has been. And I hope it's good for all of you as well. 


  1. Yes, many wishes for 2014 to be a great year for you and Maggie and the rest of your clan. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us! I love hearing about your everyday life in San Francisco. Life is good, life is hard, life is beautiful and messy - and we're all in this together!
