And we are back!

I took a little blog break without even meaning too! I even brought my laptop to my moms, thinking I would use it to do some blogging- but it just never really happened. We were so busy, and whenever I'm around my family I tend to stay away from things that distract me from them- so with out even meaning to I  took a little break. We decided to leave a two days early since we didn't have any New Years plans anyway in Iowa so we thought it would be nice to have a couple of days off here before Drew goes back to work. We left yesterday, stopped in Lincoln to see Drew's grandparents and got back around midnight.

Today we are just unpacking, getting stuff put away and organized, possibly hitting up the new H&M for the first time since it opened up last night and maybe going downtown to see the fire works tonight. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

And of course, some Christmas in Iowa pictures
