where do I begin?
did you know that every time I write that - I sing this song in my head . . . for the rest of the day?
anywho . . .
so, christmas was great. way great.
because my crown roast with apple sage stuffing turned out wonderfully (along with mustard roasted potatoes, gingered carrots and apple walnut salad with cranberry vinaigrette).
because my peppermint trifle was awesome. I pledge to make this again.
because the traditional 12 days of christmas around the dining table was festive, as always.
because jimmy loved me for throwing him a bone (a little gift to him from me via RMCF). and because my hair looks beautiful.
morning faces are the best!
because stephen and leone are having a baby (my heart!) and also because stephen's face looks a little leprechan-ish . . . which isn't surprising when you take into account this picture from a couple of years ago. oh, weevel, I love you.
because santa put the david archuleta cd in my mom's stocking and I haven't seen her laugh that hard in a long time. priceless.
because the week we just spent at the cabin was great (a little scary at times) but great. we did all the things I promised plus went to sunrise ski resort. and because I am crazy blessed.
I have a feeling that 2009 is going to be amazing . . .
