Christmas 2009

I didn't do very well this holiday season with taking my usual 2-3GB of pictures. too busy I guess. but at least I got some right?

Our tree in terrible lighting. It really did look good. I promise.

The sibling + pets lineup. Classic.

Randy Carter & Becky. Our living room is getting SO packed at holidays now! It was fun having them over on Christmas. Oh and Randy proposed to Becky later that night. She said yes, and they're getting married April 2nd. Wahoo, another sister! becky is awesome. She's like me, but cooler. We even have the same camera and get the same pants at Lane Bryant. Soul sisters.

Becky's gift to me. A "penguin books" version of pride & prejudice. The coolest book cover ever! I LOVE IT! She said she stalked my blog to find out what to get me. That's cool, because I blog stalk her too. Again, soul sisters.

Rachel is one for faces if you can't tell. The bow on her head was on the gift I gave her. She knows she loves it. Can't you see it in her face?

The necklace that Michelle made me and all the other girls in the family. She soldered these and made the chain herself. I can't imagine how long it took her to make these. i couldn't believe she made it herself, so cool!

Rachel's child. If you touch it, she WILL bite you.

The gift I was saving up for because I didn't think anyone was going to get it for me. My parents surprised me and got it. Have you guys seen "Julie & Julia" the movie? It's AMAZING and I want to be julia. I'm tall enough already, now I just need to brush up on my french cooking skills. Pastry city, here I come.

Miles was rubbing his belly for the longest time. Such a funny kid. Soothing I guess. We should all try it sometime.

Michael and his Victoria's Secret Gift. Actually it was a cat poop scented air freshener from Randy & Becky. Our cats have often dragged their bums across Michael's bed and no one elses in the family. Maybe they love him more?

Mom and the embroidery Rachel sewed for her. Rachel worked for months on it and has never done a cross stitch or embroidery before. She prety much taught herself how to do it with a little bit of coaching from me. Very impressive!

    "Coaching", riiiiiiigt. You can hardly call advice on what color I should use on the flowers "couching". Okay, so you showed me how to use the hoop but that was IT!!

  2. Awww Rebecca! I'm finally blog-stalking you for the first time since Christmas, and I read this post and just smiled. You're so sweet! Thanks for all the kind things you said about me :) I think we are soul sisters too! We just need more time to hang out and get to know each other. After all this dust settles, I say you and I have a soul sisters night, and just hang out and have fun. Perhaps watch some chic flicks, eat some caramel and go shopping!? Who knows!? :)
