I love December.

More snow. I was in heaven. I'm not going to complain one bit.

Poor Ivanka, my car, couldn't handle it, but it sure was fun to try to get her out. Though I was lucky to have a few friends around to push her back into her spot. Thanks Andrew and Steven. A few days later I was barely able to get my car out to drive down to Portland. It was a pretty uneventful drive, on the freeway anyway, then it got crazy, but was pretty fun. It worked out that I drove down with a friend of mine and her dad deserves some major praise cause he drove up to Portland from Salem to pick her up. It's normally an hour drive..... it took him 4 hours. I love dads.

Christmas was fabulous. There was playing in the snow, making and eating lots of treats, High School Musical moments with my neices, shopping with my sister, and cuddling with my new nephew, and general good times.

Snow days!

This week is snowed!!! And the city practically shut down. And I didn't go to work one day and stayed home and crafted with my roommates. Here is the result. Mine's on the right. We all fell in love with the one that Cassie made for our roommate gift exchange (her's is on the left).

I've considered giving this little guy as a gift to somebody.... but I'm not sure if I can part with him. If someone wants to give me an awesome present then I would maybe consider it, but it'd have to be good.

Also I LOVE winter. Maybe it's just being away from Alaskan winters, but I love going on a walk through the snow. And everything is quiet and pretty and I'm bundled up and I can go inside and drink hot chocolate. Perfect day.

Crafts and Christmas Parties

Here's some pics of my latest craft projects. A baby blanket for my nephew Ian and a penguin hat for a yet TBD male 2-year-old. Seen here on my neice Jayda, but I think it'd be cuter on a boy.

And here's my fabulous roommates with our Christmas tree after a pretty awesome Christmas party that involved fancy hot chocolate, popcorn balls with lucky charms (not as good as you might think), and impromptu slow-dancing to Bing Crosby and the like. I am seriously soooo lucky that I was able to move to the other side of the country and somehow move in with the coolest girls in the whole city. Thanks to Rob Nyland for bringing me to them. And thanks to Megan for showing some leg in this pic.
