Well we had a really good and very full Christmas and New Year. Bryan’s brother and his family were in town. It had been a few years since the CT VanHaitsmas had seen great grandma Van so we all took a trip to say hi. (the 2 pics) In between times with the VanHaitsmas some of my own aunts and uncles came to town. All in all there was good food, good family, and many laughs.

During the holidays we also moved Ali into her crib, worried as my parents and sister fought the flu (simply bc we wondered if we were going to get it), and then had to say goodbye to my little sister as she moved to TN.
