it has been a year since the last time we saw ryan's brother's family. since ryan's brother, his wife, and their two kids live in north carolina it's rare that we get a chance to see them, let alone spend time with them. this past week they came up to pennsylvania to visit and stayed at ryan's parents' house. we carved a little time out of our schedule to see them in order to celebrate "christmas" a few weeks early. it was so nice to get together with them and to see our nephews who are both getting so big. we had such a good time visiting that we forgot to take many photos. we did snap one when we were exchanging presents, and we had to get a photo of ryan and jeremy together who unknowingly wore the exact same outfit!
