We went over to Cathy’s place for New Year’s Eve. It was a casual and relaxed party. We all brought over food and alcohol to share, which was nice (I brought brownies!) Midnight seemed to come pretty quickly. Cathy was super-prepared with glow stick necklaces and bracelets for everyone. We turned off the lights, had our glasses of champagne ready, and got our glow sticks glowing! I think it was a perfect touch to the mood of the evening. 🙂

Look! Santa is climbing up the Eiffel Tower! This is one of my favorite ornaments. My mom and dad gave it to me one year from Christmas (not sure if it was actually 1995 or not). It’s cute isn’t it? When thinking of what I definitely want to take with me to England once I move, this and other special ornaments I’ve been given are already on the list!

As I was driving home from tutoring, the rain seemed to get louder than usual on my car. I realized that it wasn’t actually rain, but sleet! I had a hard time getting photos since I was driving and for once, there wasn’t any traffic to slow down for that would let me take a better shot! Either way, the sleet was pretty heavy for a short while. By the time I got home, though, it had stopped. It ended up snowing in the North Georgia mountains over night. Crazy winter weather!!

It was so beautiful today driving home from Marion! Perfect, sunny weather. It was a bit cold still (though as we get farther south it warmed up!) Here is a nice view of the mountains along the way. I think we were in NC at this point. We saw some snow leftover from recent snow storms along the roads and on some of the mountain peaks. The beautiful scenery certainly helped the 5 hour drive go a little bit faster!

Brandy, my super-talented baking sister-in-law, made these gingerbread cookies in the likeness of all of us! Aren’t they so cute??? I think it was a sweet idea for her to do this! From top to bottom and left to right, they are Dad (in shorts and glasses!), mom, brother Mike (with a guitar and glasses), sister Mandy (with her cell phone!), and me with my ipod and Nike + running system! Creative, eh? 🙂

On Saturday, we came up to Marion, VA to visit our brother, sister-in-law, and baby niece for the second day of Christmas. Well, baby Willow had a great time opening and exploring her new gifts from us! Here she is getting to know the fuzzy reindeer in the pop-out puppet book that Mandy gave her as part of her gift! She didn’t quite know what to think of it. She was quite taken with the pop-out effect, though!

Day 30: Making pie…

Here is the set up for making pumpkin pie! My mom randomly arranged the ingredients like this! I liked the geometric pattern and wanted to record what really is needed to make her homemade pie, so I captured it here. Oh, just a side note- the mimosa isn’t actually necessary for making pie, but it does help the process be more fun! 😉

Oh, and here’s the final result!
