Mom and Dad finally used the WXPN World Cafe Live giftcard I gave them, and went to see a folk legend – Tom Rush. Here’s Dad and Tom looking jolly 🙂
Here is what’s been going on in my life lately, through a series of photos taken on my phone.
Flowers for the table at Thanksgiving
Making cranberries for Thanksgiving dinner – I love when they start to pop out of their skins!
Two of my cousins from Texas (well, one’s in Virginia now) were up over Thanksgiving – the other two blondes in the family! A bunch of the cousins went out for drinks
Mom, Dad and I went to see my favorite artist, Sufjan Stevens, performing at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. The name of the show was The Sirfjam Stephanapolous Christmas Sing-A-Long Seasonal Affective Disorder Spectacular Music Pageant Variety Show Disaster, so you know I loved it.
Celebrating Mommy’s birthday!
This is becoming an annual tradition – happy hour and listening to the Cartoon Christmas Trio performing some great songs from the Charlie Brown Christmas movie, followed by the Old Fashioned West Chester Christmas Parade
The Mustache and I went to see the holiday lights at Rose Tree Park in Media – I remember loving these as a kid. Now that I’m grown and significantly bigger than I was at age 5, they were not nearly as awesome as I remembered. Still fun to get out and do holiday things though!
I caught the 48-hour bug that was going around in early December. Luckily I had a furry heating pad to help me through it.
Helped my parents decorate their Christmas tree – I love pulling out all the decorations and remembering what each one is about.
The Boyf and I went to the Art Museum on one of the rainy, miserable weekends we had in December
The amazing Toys for Tots haul we donated from Sides Media
A great, hilarious holiday find in someone’s yard – Two Deers A-humping!
I got this up extremely late (and was toying with the idea of not having one at all) but was glad to have it over the holiday – my own Christmas Tree!
A Christmas painting I did to go above the mantle. I got so many compliments on it, I’m going to go into business. More on that to come!
I loved taking my time and hand-addressing all my friend and family’s Christmas cards this year. Next year maybe I’ll actually get to mail them! Most of them ended up being hand-delivered.
My absolute favorite Christmas gift – a Trollbeads bracelet from the Boyf!
