a few pics to tell the story of our christmas time. what the pics dont tell is, santa brought abraham the flu! i was quite impressed with the way he handled himself though. just as sweet as can be, just as long as we kept that fever down. my mom had the flu too and was in bed all the days leading up to christmas. which was kinda fun for me to get to think through the christmas menu on my own. although my dad did the grocery shopping and ended up with a 22lb. turkey instead of the requests "turkey breast". ah well, lots of leftovers!
i also made me first batch of toffee which was out of this world. and oh so easy. (kinda). during new years dinner my sister asked, "what makes it feel like a holiday to you?" and after some thinking, i am pretty sure its baking. there is something about the joy of getting your hands messy and creating something. i love it.
i made homemade cinnamon rolls for christmas morning. lets just say that i need some practice. although, mojo made a quiche that was quite to die for.
new years eve was spent playing games and watching movies and recovering because on the 30th we were out for my aunt's 60th birthday and then went to a "pre-emptive new years eve" dance party.
despite the sickness i feel like we had some good, good family time. i just wish there was more hours in the day to see all those we love in nashville.
