Feel the love in the room from the floor to the ceiling

For those of you who weren't preteens during the 90's, those are N*SYNC lyrics from their critically acclaimed holiday album.

The fam and I spent Christmas Eve with dad's gf's family. Afterwards, we went for a drive through the neighboring development to look at lights. Every year, all the homeowners line their driveways with luminaries (white paper bags with tea lights) and it is really lovely.

(Shitty picture from my phone that does not give it justice.)

I wanted to open presents last night (patience is not one of my virtues), but my brother insisted that we wait. Guess who was jumping on his bed at 10am saying, "PRESENTS! PRESENTSPRESENTSPRESNETSSSSS." Yeah, that would be me, his 22 year old sister.

Ginger got a meat flavored rawhide. Delicious.

We spent the afternoon at a family friend's house eating brisket and chocolate mousse cheesecake. I completely understand why the average American gains 5-7 lbs during the holiday season.
They have a really cool historical home (the woman who invented birth control lived there!) so I snatched the opportunity to snap some outfit pics. The second one is for you, Elle.


Featuring:
flats, Reaction by Kenneth Cole; skirt (with pockets!), F21; sweater, F21;
necklace, UO; scarf, F21

What's that you say? My pictures look much better than usual? Oh, that would be because instead of using my Macbook webcam to take pictures, I can now use my
BRAND NEW CAMERA THAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS.
HELL FREAKING YEAH.
No big deal, it just has 10x zoom, and is 14.1 mega pixels, and automatically takes the photo when the model smiles, and has an awesome panorama function that lets me do things like this:

But enough bragging, on to the pretty Christmas pictures.


Cutest.

We like to take Myspace pictures. It helps us remember what high school was like.


Bored with the inside of the house, Nick and I ventured outdoors for inspiration. Resulting in this brief photo essay, that reads kind of like Britney Spears' commercial for Fantasy.

Once upon a time, there was a ginger in a garden.

But she had to run away to the warm car because her hands were cold.

Then her brother tried to channel his inner model, and they lived happily ever after.

THE END.


Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanzaa/Hanukkah/Festivus, everyone!

Hi Gingie! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Great to meet you :)

So, your hair is GORGEOUS. Like a shampoo model. Pretty sure that exists. And I am so jealous of your new camera! Sounds like a mean picture machine. Can't wait for more photos :)
