Moving on.....

We made it home from Virginia a few days ago and it feels like we have been living out of suitcases the entire month of December! I'm ready to just hunker down at home for the next few months. We had a wonderful time spending Christmas with my Dad, Maria and the family. Everyone was so kind and gracious (as usual). We are already planning to head back up for Easter. Brandon, being the military buff that he is, decided to take us on a field trip to Appomattox. That is the site where the Civil War ended. It was a nice historical break in our 6 hour road trip home. Here are a few pics from our trip. I may sound like Debbie Downer when I say "Halelujah, the Holiday season is almost over!" Yippee. My decorations are already boxed away for next year (Thank you Brandon for taking care of it for me). Once again I am looking forward to a New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It's been a crazy last few months here at the Zito House and I totally slacked on the annual Christmas card, so this will just have to do. We are headed to Yorktown, VA to spend Christmas with my Dad and Maria. I haven't spent a Christmas with my Dad in 14 years, so it's long overdue. I'm super excited and Maddie can't wait to see Grandpa and Mimi. I'll be sure to take lots of pics and post them as soon as we are back in sunny yet cold TN. Merry Christmas everyone! We love and miss you all. :)

Utah Trip and Home Again...

Alright, so I'm being lazy and not blogging as often as I once did. But this time I have good reason. We took off to Utah 2 weeks ago and it's been a whirlwind ever since. Now that I'm back home I am enjoying the pleasant weather, but missing my family and close friends out West. We had a blast in Utah and it made me homesick all over again. I have to say "Sorry" to those friends that I didn't get time to hang with, but we are planning on coming back out in July, so there is still hope right? I have to say thanks to both sets of parents for letting us crash at their pads. Also, thanks to my step-dad Bruce for letting me drive the Ridgeline all over the Wasatch Front. Unfortunately, now Maddie says, "I hate this truck" because that's all I would say when I was driving it, (usually that statement came out when I was attempting to park the beast). I guess I'm just a small car gal, better tell that to my Pacifica. Enjoy the slideshow. Brandon took some pics of the snow out here in Johnson City, so yes it does snow here, but doesn't stick. I think I like that kind of snow best, you get the effect but not the messy driving conditions. I'm looking forward to Christmas and now counting down to July! I love and miss you all! :)
