I hope you all had a beautiful holiday season and that 2016 is going to be a great year for all of us! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, due to all the flurry of activity and finishing a huge project which I will share with you in a separate post. But before that, I wanted to share some of the highlights from our holidays and wish you all a great new year!
There’s alot going on in this photo that tells how the holidays start in our house. Notice my daughter keeps the Target toy catalog right next to her when doing homework. After Christmas lists are made, that catalog mysteriously disappears when she’s at school. Hmmm….
My daughter with her music teacher right before their Christmas concert. One of my favorite holiday treats is the music – and seeing my kids perform what they work on in school for the first semester.
You know a Star Wars fan like me wouldn’t make it through the season without going to see the new movie! In case any of you haven’t seen it, I won’t spoil anything – I’ll just say it was REALLY GOOD! 🙂 My kids asked me to do my hair like Princess Leia – I didn’t want side buns, so I chose the Cloud City braids instead.
As mentioned, one of my favorite things to do at the holidays is listen to music I don’t listen to the rest of the year. This year, I took a dear friend and my daughter to see Handel’s Messiah at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Disney hall has amazing architecture, and I couldn’t resist taking multiple shots!
Inside the hall before the oratorio began. This was very special to me, as Messiah was my father’s favorite Christmas music and this was the first time I’ve taken my daughter to the symphony.
Family photo taken in the church after Christmas Eve service. I treasure these photos and am always happy we make the time to take a few!
Christmas morning. Yes, I make the kids wait for me to take photos of them with their stockings. That’s my revenge for the fact that they woke me up at 4 am. 🙂
My coffee table with New Year’s Eve goodies. I’m particularly proud of this setup as it proves that I do indeed know how to clear the coffee table and use it for something besides knitting and WIP’s.
