Hanukkah 2011

Posted by: Maggie

Continuing with my late recap of the Holidays…the weekend before Christmas we celebrated Hanukkah with Josh’s family. We were actually celebrating early since Hanukkah started so late this year. We hosted the usual dinner at our place. I made regular and sweet potato latkes. The sweet potato ones were super tasty.

After dinner we exchanged gifts.

Josh and I along with his sister and sister-in-law Jenny got Josh’s dad an album of photos from their childhood, from their parent’s wedding through Josh and Beth’s graduations from high school. It was a project that I had been working on for literally years. I’ll dedicate a post to the album and the enormous project that it was later.

For now, I’ll say that Josh’s dad loved it.

We also made an album for Josh’s dad and step-mom of their wedding that I shot last year. They hadn’t gotten around to ordering an album from me and the day after Christmas was their one year anniversary, so I decided that I’d just choose their images and album design for them! Luckily they were very happy with it!

Eleanor also got some gifts that she was very happy with.

Christmas Eve with my family is up next!

Holiday Lights

Okay, so it’s about time that I catch up on holiday posts! The weekend before Christmas we spent an evening looking at Christmas lights. It’s one of my very favorite holiday traditions! We get some hot drinks, gingerbread lattes for Josh and I and hot apple cider for Eleanor (the strange kid doesn’t like cocoa!), we put some Christmas music on the car stereo and we drive around town looking at the streets with the best holiday light displays! So much fun!

Here are some of my favorites lights this year:

More holiday fun coming soon!

House Tour: Holiday Decor 2011

Posted by: Maggie

I love holiday decor! It doesn’t feel like Christmas until my living room is filled with lights and Christmas tree scent! This year I went with a classic red & green theme for our holiday decor. (You can see last year’s Elegant Wooded Christmas HERE, and the previous year’s Woodsy Christmas HERE )

You see that vase of candy on my desk? It started out about 3/4 full. I was hoping that would last the month, but it doesn’t look like we’ll make it.
