Christmas in Houston

Sorry for the complete lack of posting lately!   This winter holiday has been wonderful, and I’m thoroughly enjoying my time off from classes, studying, and clinic.  I don’t have to go back to school until the 18th, and my goal is to have the kitchen renovation done by the time I go back.  We’ve been making great progress, and I can’t wait to share that with you all later this week.

Before I get into the kitchen, I thought I would post a couple of photos from our Christmas vacation in Houston.  We ate a lot of delicious food and spent a lot of time enjoying the warmer weather and hanging out with friends and family.  (Last night we had a low of 9 degrees here so I’m really missing that Houston weather!)

Here are some of the highlights from the trip…

Jimmee and I with our dog, Kitty.  (She was probably distracted during the photo shoot by one of the cats roaming the house.)

My mom made lemoncello for gifts, and it looked so pretty in the window.

Jimmee surrounded by our dog and my parent’s dog, Clemmie.

Christmas morning!  We all slept in this year and opened presents late in the morning.  We ate our traditional mexican breakfast after we opened presents, and then had an early Christmas dinner with friends.

All the sisters reunited!

Well, that sums up our vacation!  Hope you guys had a wonderful holiday, and a happy new years!!

I’ll start posting all the photos from the kitchen this week so stay tuned.  We have the bottom cabinets in place and are working on the upper cabinets as I type!  See you all again soon….
