Winter Wonderland

For Christmas I went back to Ohio to visit my family. Months ago I found this suitcase tag and just had to buy it! Oh, life as an underfunded heiress ;p

I was hoping for a beautiful white Christmas but instead it rained and was around 50 degrees. I think it may have been colder in Cali!

Although I missed out on making snow angels, I still had a very nice and relaxing time. I love going back and seeing my family. I wish they all lived here.
No Christmas tree but we did have a snowman that lit up :)

My Mom
My friend Jennifer who I met in 3rd grade!

Grandma - she's so stylin!

I am almost embarrassed to admit that much of my visit was spent sleeping in until noon, watching marathon holiday movies and eating JUNK FOOD! Ohio will do that to you. I felt like a bear in hibernation. I blame it on the weather! On the way from the airport to my mom's house (that's right, I didn't even wait until I got home and unpacked) we stopped at Jack Frost donuts. These are the absolutely BEST donuts ever! They are soooo delicous and fresh. Yummmm.

I love the holidays!!!

  2. Hi Timothy,

    Sorry about that. I am new to blogging ;)

    Your a great photographer. Love that picture!

  3. Ha! That luggage tag is so fitting. Grandma looks adorable ... her grandchildren must take after her. ;-) And now I'm drooling over Jack Frost doughnuts!

    I WILL be home for the holidays next year. *sigh*

  4. Jack Frost Donuts: my Mom used to take my Sisters and I almost every Sunday after p.m. church to get JF Donuts while growing up. Nothing better. Do you love the glazed? How about that- New Years in SD... :-)/:-( !
    I am glad you rested and treated yourself to some no-no's! And, Melanie, you are such a snot... why must your 7 foot ass wear 4 in. heels all the geez. Rock that stature gal. Happy '09! Hope to see you this year. Love the luggage tag! I chose a passport to the world calender this year.
