Extended Family

December 2011-February 2012

3 weeks ago we moved. We are just a couple blocks away from where we were living. We are loving the new house, and starting to get settled.

In honor of my grandparents who used to go dancing weekly back in the day, we had a family dance with my whole extended family. It was a blast and Magdalena was the life of the party. She was the first one dancing, and the last one dancing. And she danced the entire time. Probably...
