I live in Albany, NY. My family lives in Boyertown, PA. Although we don't have too many crazy traditions for the holidays, Christmas is my favorite time to spend with them. I has an amazing time this weekend just getting to spend some quality time with them. Thanks guys for being the best family ever. I miss you already! Is it Christmas again yet?
Here's mom's beautiful Christmas tree. She's spent years getting the perfect ornaments to coordinate with her living room- it's perfect!
Christmas Eve was spent making cookies with mom and my sister, Caitlin. Nothing a little NY wine can't help!
This was TOO much fun! Mom as all of these vintage cookie cutters from my grandmother- super cool!
Mom's perfect cookie- note the ridges!
Just fooling around with some booze.
Like I said- TOO much fun. Very happy I got that new camera for Christmas!
Caitlin's amazing chewy brownie cookies!
Woke up to ALL these presents- crazy!
All of my presents still come from Santa. I love my mom's handwriting.
Christmas morning cocktails with mom. This has to be my favorite picture of her ever.
Caitlin just gave Dad a handle of Captain Morgan. THAT'S why they're smiling!
Mom really liked the Eagle's pot holders I got her...
And the locket too!
Super knit stocking from Aunt Lucille. You all better watch out- I REALLY want to make these for everyone for Christmas next year!
The house all lit up on Christmas- very beautiful!
The roast beast with a little NY wine!
Hope you all had a very happy holiday season as well. For more pictures, check out my Flickr set!
