The Holidays

It's January! When did that happen?

Finally, here's my post-Holiday 2008 wrap-up. I'll make it very concise since it's been almost a month.

Christmas with the Wilsons:
Oh the food.....

Coconut Cake... a tradition with Chris' family.

Homemade marshmallows dipped in chocolate, via this Martha recipe.

Cheese straws! Go Emily, go!

Peppermint bark..... we really liked the peppermint bark.
I really liked licking the spoon covered in melted white chocolate.
Other than the food, there were plenty of presents, laughs, and little kids running around picking stuff up.

Christmas at Mamaw's:
There was more food, more presents, and more laughs.

Christmas at Granny's:
I don't have any pictures from this, but it was lots of fun. My favorite present came from Lydia, a set of 5 Doctor Horrible pins. So cute.

New Year's in Rayle:
Abbie's mom made my favorite: Chicken 'n' Dumplins. I got to meet Abbie's fiancee, Joey, and his two little girls. We put a ridiculously difficult puzzle together. That about sums it up....

Yeah, okay. I know this post isn't exactly full of details, but it is almost 1am and the new semester starts tomorrow.

Hopefully I can get back to blogging regularly now. Maybe so much you'll even get sick of me.

Goodnight for now.

Looks like you had fun making all of those Christmas goodies. They were good too.

I have been missing you on here.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I looked up the painting you were talking about. Glad you like the guinea. Everyone seemed to like that one. It was fun to paint too.
