My siblings, doggie, and me... all decked out in red on Christmas Eve.

Hey lovelies! I'm back from my little holiday hiatus. How was your Christmas? Mine was wonderful, but far too short! I spent the evening of the 23rd, entire 24th, and first half of the 25th with my family, then I spent the evening of the 25th with my boyfriend's family. I had to be back in my college town for work on the 26th. But hopefully (weather permitting, this is Iowa) I can go back this weekend and spend New Year's with everybody.
Get anything good for Christmas? I got a lot of kitchen stuff (pasta cooker, new coffee maker, blender, Giada cookbook, fancy olive oil bottle) and Iowa State clothes. My boyfriend got me a beautiful antique mirrored tray with a silver Victorian set of a brush, comb, and hand-mirror. He knows me so well. ;)
The best part about Christmas was spending time with my family and the bf's family---I felt like I hadn't seen them in forrrrever, even though it'd only been since Thanksgiving. Christmas Eve night was pizza night for my family---my mom, her sisters, and my grandma all made amazing homemade pizzas. And Christmas night at my bf's place was delish as well as fun---we played Scattergories, Imaginiff, and the Xbox Kinnect (so fun & funny!).
