Finally about Christmas!

I'm so sorry it has been forever since I have updated. I had an amazing 1 month vacation from my life in Moscow. Each day was such a blessing it is hard to describe. I had a great time just spending time with my family, friends, working on the house, running errands, sleeping, everything was great. The only problem with me being home and around the people I love is that I don't want to "waste" that little bit of cherished time with them by spending forever on the computer. So you will have to settle for my delayed updates.

Christmas was wonderful. We drove in Christmas Eve and went straight to my Memaw and Papaws for Christmas over there. I am extremely blessed, my because they bought me a new comforter set that I really wanted for my "new room" (since the whole house it pretty new now). That was wonderful because right now I wouldn't have been able to get it for myself. We had a great time just hanging out over there and listening to my Memaw tell old stories. I love that. Those are really some of my favorite times is when I get to hear about the 'good 'ol days'.

Christmas day we spent at my Aunt Tammy's house with my dad's side of the family. That was wonderful as usual. I enjoy getting caught up on all the new drama with each family. I got to see two aunts with preggo babies and that was exciting. Food was amazing as usual.
The rest of my time in Houston was just spent hanging out with the Tacconi's and Niki and Ashley. I really just love hanging out. Oh and this was the first time for a trip to Houston that my brother hung around the family the whole time. He is usually with his friends, which is completely understandable. But he said this time he just didn't feel like calling and telling them he was in town. Well this was really special for me because I got to spend a lot of good time with him that I usually don't.

Ok well here are some pics from Christmas!
