Christmas Sparkle

Another successful Christmas! My family and I spent a few days down the Cape with my extended family. We had a cut throat ping pong tournament, per usual. And per usual, I was out in the first round. (And this year I even trained for a week before hand. I wish I was joking when I say this, but I am not). We also added a Minute to Win It competition to the end of Christmas. Great addition! I hope it makes an appearance at other family gatherings. I had a lot of fun just sitting around and chatting with my family. This year we focused on spending time with family rather than gift giving. I will admit, I did not miss the extra gifts at all. :o)

I made pumpkin whoopie pies that were a huuuuge success. Wicked easy and wicked good. They instantly became a family favorite. 

Our family Christmas is very casual and low key. However, I just bought new tights and really wanted to wear them, so this is the outfit I came up with. When I walked downstairs my father commented that it looked like I had tree branches growing on my skirt and I belonged in the forrest. (He thinks he's a fashionista, but he is a gym teacher who is constantly in sweats, so I took the comment with a grain of salt). I would also like to give props to my cousin Kathryn for taking these photos of me. They turned out fabulous.
