Christmas catch-up

Here are a few more details and pics from my Christmas vacation up north.

First of all, I finally got to meet Shawn!! (My older half-brother, for those of you who don't know.) He spent a day and night at my parents' house while I was there, and it was so great to hang out. Below are some pics from the occasion.

Shawn, Aaron, me, Evan, Collin. (I feel like I look like a midget in the middle of them.)

My mom "encouraged" (aka "forced") us all to bake and decorate Christmas cookies while Shawn was visiting. My favorite outcome from the cookie baking definitely had to be the following picture:

Yes, that's right, My father made a gingerbread woman in a bikini. He is such a goofy man.

After the great holiday days (aka Christmas Eve and Christmas), I also got to hang out with the wonderful Brian Fife, the splendid Jessica S-Squared, and the amazing Alison Clendenning and Tori. Sadly, I forgot to get pictures with Brian, Alison, and Tori. :( (Speaking of which, I forgot to get pictures with a bunch of family members, too. Dad...can you email me some?? :) )

Jess and me

When we got back to NC, Dave was excited to find that a tent he had ordered had arrived. What followed was 30 minutes of my husband reverting back to a 10-year-old, building the tent in our living room and climbing inside. In fact, he was so excited, he climbed in before he'd taken the time to put it together. See below. Such a silly boy.
