Lack of an Update

I haven't posted in quite a while, but I really just don't have anything that exciting happening in my life these days. Here's a little bit of what's been going on lately:

Drew and I went to our alma mater's Homecoming on Halloween day. It was exciting for several reasons- my cousin Lauren was a Homecoming queen candidate (she won!!), Hank and I were driving her in the parade (and he had a Tiger costume to wear to support the good ole ECU Tigers), and it was our school's centennial. We had a really good time and a lot of my family came in to support Lauren, and I was glad they all got to see that school that I loved so much. We also got to catch up with friends, which is always a good time.

Thanksgiving was a blur of activity. We celebrated with my immediate family Wednesday night and then got up Thursday and drove 3 long hours to Alva to see Drew's family. I did get to meet the newest additions to the Brunsteter clan, Stella (~5 months) and Conrad (~2 months). We came home late Thursday to get up and go Christmas shopping Friday. We shopped, napped and then went to my cousin's house for game night. We play this game called Settlers of Catan, and we are all obsessed with it. We usually play into the wee hours of the morning because we just can't stop. Then Saturday we ate lunch with our cousins and went and saw Blind Side, which was awesome, I highly recomend it if you haven't seen it yet. Saturday evening we drove to Braggs to have Tree Trimming with the Carner family. And Sunday was a much needed day of rest.

It looks like Christmas is going to be just as busy. But I love this time of year, and I love spending time with family, so all the hustle and bustle is well worth it.
