We made it alive

Indeed. What's left of our family headed off back to italy for a touching (cough cough) family reunion today (all, minus a prodigal sister off in some strange continent learning spanish with a mexican accent). Presently I'm sitting at the dinner table of one of our lovely/noisy family dinners invloving consins, grandparents, uncles and aunts and i'm trying to work off the feeling of being stuffed by way too many pizzas while listening to the rest of us shouting, fighting and laughing. What really made me laugh is my three-year-old cousin managing to get my sis Vale to bite her own finger because he got her to thing it was his while they were play fighting......sigh, it's good to be home.
