Every Christmas, my mom and I get together with Brenda, one of her teaching friends, and her daughter Paula. It’s a sweet tradition that we’ve diligently maintained over the years.
Paula started blogging again, and she’s doing a lot of writing about her recent travels to Europe. She also has cute craft/DIY ideas, and I hope that she will help me decorate our next apartment because goodness knows she has a better sense of aesthetics than I do. (And also, super-shiny hair!)
We got delicious cupcakes from Frostings.
Meanwhile, Gracie Cat kept us on our toes.
And, unrelated, my mom has more patience than I do. She attempted to make this “semi-homemade” pie. (Notice the large frozen pork tenderloin.)
