Christmas Memories 2011

I have about 100 photos from Christmas Eve Eve, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and the day after Christmas on my phone...I'm thinking about making an album of Christmas Memories (my mom has one, and it's very cute), but I thought incase time gets away from me, and that doesn't happen, I'd record a few highlights here. This is me diverting away from normal interior design stuff again. :)

the day before Christmas, Jordan and his brother exchanged gifts at our house. They both had bought each other records...we laughed when they both obviously had bought records for each other, but it turned out that they had bought each other the exact same record, which was Coldplay's new album. Funny.

Christmas Eve, we always go to my mom's house and my grandparent's house. This is me, my brother, and my stepbrother's little boy at my mom's house, about to have dinner. Don't ask me why I'm looking at the wall... at least we're all smiling.

This is my brother Andy, and my brother David. Aren't they cute? I love them.

Just a photo I took at my mom's, after lots of gifts had been opened. That's my stepdad and my stepbrother's little girl in the back. I like how it's dusk outside and the tree is reflecting in the window...pretty.

This is my stocking! Every year since I was a baby, I think. My Nana, my dad's mom, made it for me (she made them for all her grandchildren). I love it! I remember really loving all the sequins on it when I was a little girl. Why do little girls love sparkles so much? heh.

Christmas morning at our house! Mika was a good boy this year (kind of. Minus the scratches and bites he likes to randomly give). He got sardine toys and a catnip ball. mmm.

The damage after Jordan and I exchanged gifts. It was fun!

This is at Jordan's mom's house...she has about 30 people (or more!) over for Christmas dinner every year. It's fun, and the house is bustling with kids and adults. I love it. I took this picture before dinner (obviously).

Jordan and his cute niece in her Christmas dress. She is delectable.

This is me and Chase, Jordan's nephew. He's really cute! He liked the photobooth function on my phone. :)

We had brunch at our house with my dad and my stepmom the day after Christmas. My brothers girlfriend is mid-bite or something..oops.

Last but not least, did you know they had cat game apps for iPads? Pretty awesome...they are on

There's a little glimpse at our Christmas holiday - how was your's?

  4. I love your Xmas photo’s, you and your brothers are so good looking and it looks like you had a beautiful Xmas. My husband got and ipad and I got a Tracfone SVC for Xmas, I can't believe you can get fish games for cats on the ipad. I love the idea!!!!!!! as my cats live in an apartment and sometimes do get bored.
    What are you people doing on old years eve, we are going down to South Beach where the night life will be swinging on Ocean Drive, Miami.

  5. tamara, thanks!!! you should definitely get the cat app. my cat just looks at the fishies, he doesn't try to make any moves...but, if you tap the fish, it splashes and goes back down into the water. my stepmom said that their cat will actually play the game, and tap the fish. she said he got frustrated once, and kept trying to tap underneath the ipad, becaus ehe was convinced that the fishes were underneath it. hah!!
