Bits and pieces of the holidays

It’s hard to believe today is the 22nd of January. It seems we were just setting filling the Thanksgiving table with scrumptious dishes and singing Christmas carols at holiday concerts. Now, here we are, 22 days into 2013, with our resolutions still intact — right? I hope so.

I thought I should hurry and share the last of my holiday season photos, just little snippets red and green life from December. There were days on my mom’s couch with my sister and visiting brother, lots more time around the table and fun things under the Christmas tree.

Here’s a peak into this simple life.

I won a gift basket for entering an office potluck. I think it’s one of the best baskets that have ever been given:Image

My little brother is all grown up with his cars and motorcycle and military career that’s taken him to Afghanistan at least a half dozen times, but he’s still the goofball he was when we were annoying each other as children:Image

More lounging and watching scary movies with the siblings:ImageChristmas trees and lights:ImageImageImage

Stockings (or a cement guy’s work socks) hung over a chimney (or wood stove) with joy.Image

    I still have not seen that super cute glass terrarium. I will need to make a trip to Stockton just for that.
