Christmas Eve

{ Mom & Dad }

{ The usual dinner set up... this seats more than it looks like }

{ New kitchen!! }

{ Mom, Aunt Dini & Meg }

{ Claire, Meg & Sarah }

{ Aunt Suzi & Nene }
{ Dinner time }
{ Dinning room dinner table & kitchen dinner table }

{ K dot C dot }

{ A boy and his beloved pup }

{ Post-dinner naps... sure looks cozy – not! }

These little gems are a continuation of Christmas Eve at my house :) Via this post you may remember that we were all a little stressed about the kitchen being presentable to the family for Christmas Eve dinner; well folks it was beautiful! Now, they have moved on to finishing the kitchen, building the addition, repainting, and redoing the floor in the living room! YAY! My mom said it should be done sometime mid february, so I just have to go home and check it out!

Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend!

All my mom asked for this Christmas, was some personal art! She wanted something fresh to hang in the new kitchen... so I crafted up this little trio and framed them for her!

{ a photo of them hung on the wall to come... when all construction is complete! }

Hope you all had joyous holidays and a happy first week of 2013! Let me tell you; 2013 is going to be a great year folks! I have some big plans for this year. Lots of travels and hopefully lots of changes! 

The holidays, as usual, were filled with lots of family & friends. Cleveland for Christmas and Chicago for NYE! Thankfully the construction on our kitchen re-model was complete in-time for Christmas Eve dinner!!

Here are some highlights :

{ dad & brother sleeping off dinner... not sure why they thought this was cozy! }

{ i love this little girl }

{ Rock & Roll Hall of Fame visit with family }

{ Pocketbooth iPhone App-fun with Meg }

{ puppy-dog getting cozy }

{ check out that snow-dino kids }

{ cousins & brother with our giant snowman, it was a busy day }

{ my dayton friends in chi-town }

{ NYE with my roommates... tradition 4 years strong }

{ NYE: Courtney and i }

Some of my resolutions include; 
1. Understanding more of what I am putting into my body. This means: Splurging on the organic stuff, ridding my freezer of the frozen junk, & drinking more tea ( no I cannot abandon my love of coffee. not a chance – lent was hard enough! )
2. Less couch time, aka watching TV, more reading!
3. Portfolio, portfolio, portfolio!!! Which then brings job searching... in Cali :)
4. Create a web-presence for myself
5. Start selling on Etsy
6. Stay positive!
