merry christmas & a happy new year

IMG_3167WOW! I can’t believe 2013 has come and gone. And with another new year, I find myself feeling a bit more like the old self I used to know. As you may have noticed, I have been a bit absent from the blog world these days. I have been very busy growing a new little blessing. And boy, oh boy has this little one been making itself known.
IMG_3277As you can see over Christmas break we had some very lovely pictures taken. (Thanks Leila!) It was fun to get a few shots in while we were all together.
IMG_3226For those of you who don’t know… let me introduce my siblings to you. Left to Right: Garrett, Grant, John, and then there’s me. As you can tell, one (or two of these are not the same) My parents adopted John from China January 2010 when he was 14 years old. The other who doesn’t look the same is Garrett – the redheaded, left handed, chines speaking very white boy. But he’s been a Weinberg since conception, at least that’s what we’ve been told :)
IMG_3311And some other very exciting news: I am getting another sister-in-law! She’s the first to join the Weinberg’s and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s been so fun getting to know her again! You see, I remember her as a Jr. Higher, but now she’s all grown up and marrying my brother, Grant! The wedding will be in August and we can’t wait for the party!IMG_3044 IMG_3179A little side note in this very random blog post: I think my parents like being grandparents. What do you think?

family christmas '13 - 1

We also had a great time meeting baby Aiden and baby Evelyn (left to right) for the first time! It was fun seeing Ian’s family and getting to hang with the cousins and sister-in-laws. (Thanks for the picture Joan!)IMG_3088

We had a great trip back to WA and had lots of fun times with both the Luggs and the Weinbergs. We had a great time celebrating our Lords birth with many presents and much yummy feasting. I was a bridesmaid in a good friends wedding. I got a rare date with the husband. And we even squeezed in some lunch and dinners with some good friends! It’s always such a PARTY in WA.

IMG_3348We will let the lovely, new couple walk us out of this blog post. Merry Christmas and a Happy Happy New Year.
