1. We are back from the funeral. It was emotional for me. Not because of Grandma. She was in such bad health. It was a relief for her to go. And she will be MUCH happier where she is now. But that we were burying her next to my little sister. She died in 2000 and it still gets to me. I have only visited the grave yard twice in the 8 years since her death. Still don't like to be there. Just reminds me of the loss. Some people like to remember their lost loves ones in grave yards. Not me. I'd rather think of her life. Of good memories. Not of loss. And on friday i was standing knee deep in sad reminders.
2. On a much happier note, It was interesting being at someone else's house for Christmas this year in particular. Since I am pregnant and just at the three month mark, I was sick not at home. With lots of people around all the time. Made Christmas a little different for me. (i'm due in july) And yes, we are quite excited. The kids have differing things to say about the coming baby. Lucy now says she also has a baby in her tummy too. And whenever I am holding her she puts her hands on my chest and says "Babies in here?" (always awkward!) Where as Alden only wants twin brothers. (No idea where he learned what twins were....)
3. Got some new pictures of my brother and sil and their kiddos on my photo blog. Just love them. (I mean the family.)
