I just spent the last 45 minutes reading blog posts from the 2008 holiday season. I love that I can so easily reminisce with the help of my blog. I have the worst memory, so it’s nice to have events and holidays well documented and easy to access.
As for 2009’s tree decorating extravaganza, Mal, Murphy, and I had a wonderful time. We listened to Christmas carols, baked cookies, and decorated the tree.
I love this photo of Mal! Isn’t my husband handsome?
It was a lot more difficult to take a nice photo of my dog, however.
I tried using all sorts of treats and toys to get him to sit still and look at the camera. No luck. I must have taken 20 photos and these were the best of the bunch!
Oh yea, our Christmas tree is easily 10 feet tall!
Adorable husband + pug!
Mal and I shared leftovers from last night’s dinner at Ristorante Lucia. We also added a couple of side salads to the meal. It was a quick, minimal effort Sunday night dinner. Plus, both of us really wanted to skip right to dessert.
Best holiday dessert ever: eggnog and sugar cookies!
I was in heaven tonight! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
