One of the fun aspects of having a baby is when friends visit. We have had a steady flow of people in and out of our house wanting to see him and hold him. I can't resist taking pictures of him.

Jennifer brought a delicious meal for us--such a treat!

Lisa and her husband Jon came over, but I didn't have a chance to take a picture of Jon :(
I think Justin is going to be a very socialized little guy!

I also loved watching other people hold my babies, because you see a new view of their precious little features.

What a time of rejoicing for many!




Italy trip

I have been going through my pictures, and have enjoyed looking at this album of Italy. I was able to go over last year to attend a conference. This was the first time I have been back in twenty years. The pictures are made up mostly of places we lived as a family. My brother and I were able to go together, and we were graciously hosted by some friends of ours from language school in Perugia. I feel such a sense of nostalgia when I look at these pictures. I miss Italy so much. It was strange to go back as a tourist knowing I would be returning to the US after such a short time. Tonight I made cookies with Nutella in them, and I remembered how much I enjoyed the simple pleasures. Fortunately, you can find it here! Saturday, we are going up to my brother's house to celebrate a late Thanksgiving, only we will be making homemade tortellini instead of turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!
