I think this rather unflattering photo of me sums this year up nicely. I came, I saw, I dealt with some BS. I still kept my smile on. Overall it was a good year. And I got to wear a necklace of my friend Derrick wearing a Peter Pan outfit and riding a purple unicorn.
This December flew by. My husband and I spent an evening decorating sugar cookies with our awesome niece Sierra. She is a funny kid. After a while we all got a bit bored of the task, and took to decorating our faces with royal icing mustaches.
We went to an ornament exchange party at out friends’ Brady and Laura’s house. That’s my sister next to me in the awesome fox sweater that I want to steal. Speaking of stealing, I got to choose my ornament last, so I decided to steal. I stole a bizarre glass “can” of Chicken Chow Mein, which I gloated about drunkenly since my friend Ezra really wanted to keep it.
This was probably the most mellow of our Christmas eve’s, since we didn’t have to rush to make it to church since no church nearby seemed to be doing a night-time service. Which ended up being a good thing. We had tons of fun just watching lights and eating those cookies we all had worked so hard on.
The next day we went to my inlaws’ house for christmas dinner, and I guess I haven’t uploaded my photos of that yet so the picture tour stops here.
Overall it was a great month, and I’m going to be sad to take all my christmas stuff down this week.
I’m hoping that 2013 will bring lots of fun and great things for us! As for tonight, my husband and I are spending tonight home together, wearing some comfy sweat pants and eating lasagna. We’ll watch the ball drop, drink some wine and go to sleep. Sounds like the perfect night to me.
Happy New Year, everyone. I hope your entire 2013 is merry and bright.
