A lovely way to end the year

Welcome Lovely Sofia Olympia! Happy news in our family. My older brother and his wife (yep you read that right) are the proud parents of this amazingly adorable little angel. We were lucky enough to have the honor of being the first family members to meet her. We met them at the airport 2 weeks ago and I have never seen my big bro or Gloria so happy, they were radiating joy. And miss Sofia... she did not disapoint. Both Zaz & Moe were out of their mind with glee. Holding time was fought over the entire stay, which was not long enough. It is so wonderful having a wee baby in the family again.
The other happy news was that my Mom, who has been battling brain tumors for the past 11 years will have a break this year from surgery and radiation, as the new tumors ( yes there are more ) are extremely SLOW growing and her neurosurgeon believes that at the rate they are growing, it should not be an issue (at least for the next few years). Joan, finally can breathe easily knowing that she has no major tumor issues in the immediate future. Way to go Mom.
We ended the year with a flurry of sporting events, Swimming for Zaz & Hoops for T-Moe. Am I the last person to know that basketball is a contact sport?? Check out T's eye after a very aggressive tourney game.
Happy 2009, may you and your be well & safe.
