When we went to see ICE! a couple weeks ago, we also took a few minutes to walk around the National Harbor in the bitter, bitter cold to see the tree. It was so cold, but very pretty. I wore leggings under my jeans, wool socks, boots, and a host of layers on top. I definitely came prepared.
For New Years Eve, a bunch of our friends came over to Chris' parents' house and we had an awesome time. We had fajitas and 'ritas, played some form of charades and dominated at Just Dance 2 - a really fun Wii game. We also got to hang out with a bunch of friends we don't often get to see :)

I had a week at home to fall in love with this little guy, and I miss him a ton!! Reading in the afternoon is just not the same without him jumping up on your lap and falling asleep on top of your book. I'm pretty sure he would try to prevent me from reading so I would pay attention to him and pet him instead. It definitely worked. Anyway, I believe he's enjoying living with Eric, and I can't wait to see him again!
I received these super cute 12 Days of Christmas plates from my grandparents for Christmas this year. Each one is a different day of the song and I've been using them non-stop since we got them! Everything Christmas-y in our house is packed up now except for these. How late in the season is rationally acceptable to keep using these plates??
