Look! Here I am again. Impressive right? :) I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I sure did. It was pretty busy but a ton of fun. The only bummer was that Jamal pulled a muscle in his back and got sick a couple of days before so he pretty much laid around all weekend long not feeling good.
Christmas Eve we went to the candlelight service at church like we always do. As usual it was fun. who doesn't long singing Christmas songs by candlelight? We also take Communion on Christmas Eve and I'll let you in on a little secret, I may be the weirdo who takes a few extra of the crackers. I find them oddly delicious. Then after church we went to my aunt's to celebrate with them and my grandma. We exchanged gifts and had some snacks.
Christmas morning we slept in since Jamal wasn't feel well and then went to cousin's house in the afternoon for a big dinner with all my family. We chatted and ate and had a good time. It is always nice to see everyone and this year I think all of my out of town cousins made it which was cool. We spent most of the day there.
On the 26th my aunt Priscilla took me and my cousin Meagan out to dinner and to see The Cocktail Hour at the Guthrie. I love dressing up and going to plays so that part was fun but the dinner wasn't too good and the play kinda sucked but it was still a good night :)
Then on Saturday I went to a surprise 70th birthday party for my great aunt Esther. So there I got to see the other side of my family which was nice. We don't see them too often so it is always fun to get together with them. I am seriously proud of my great looking family #goodgenes
I would just like to mention that I am the oldest one in this picture and the 2nd to shortest; the only person shorter than me is 8 years old...
These guys crack me up. They had some funny poses.
All the girls
And on Sunday I went ice skating for the first time in years. I always want to go but Jamal refuses and year after year I just never do it. So when Meagan suggested we go I couldn't say no. We went downtown to the Depot with a couple of her friends. Ice skating is a lot more work than I remember! My legs were sore. But it ended up being a lot of fun.
And now to get ready for New Year's! What are your plans? We still have no idea what we're doing.
