Lows & Highs: 12/19/12-1/1/13

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from the stairs!

Brian & I celebrated Christmas four times and drove quite a bit between each one. We also tried to spend lots of quality time together and with our families, so I skipped Lows & Highs last week and this post covers the past two weeks.

Low: My grandparents on my dad’s side both had a virus during the week before Christmas. To give them more time to recover & to keep Eli from catching the bug, we postponed our Christmas celebration with them.

High: 1) We celebrated Christmas with Brian’s relatives (most of whom I met before) and I was warmly included with the rest of the grandchildren, complete with my own Christmas stockings. 2) We enjoyed Christmas with my family too, twice! It was fun to see how our Christmas dinner photos changed since last year; we have added three new people (fiancé, Brian; nephew, Eli; cousin-in-law, Catherine). 3) Brian was surprised and pleased by the rag quilt I made him for Christmas.
