I Got a Tripod!!!

Friends, I have exciting news.
I am moving up in the photography world.
I got a tripod for Christmas!

Of course, you know what that means right...?
Get excited everybody.

This afternoon I ventured into my backyard and experimented a bit.
Here's what my tripod saw:

Happy New Year, Y'all!

Good Tidings We Bring

Photographs from a lovely Christmas Eve get together.
These are the people that I am blessed to do life with.

Every year my Grandad makes his famous eggnog.

It's so good that people find themselves lingering around the bowl..

The BEST cake I have ever made.

This was precious (for a moment). Jeremiah wanted a turn to hold his baby cousin. After about a minute and half, he went to jump up, and my Aunt had to miraculously save the baby from being flung to the ground. He'll learn someday :)

Good Tidings- from my kin to yours.

Maybe I Should Marry a Farmer?

Hi Friends!
I am home for Christmas break, and I must say it is wonderful!
It's such a relaxing (albeit very strange) feeling not to have to do anything.
I could lay on the couch and watch the Food Network literally all day if I wanted to.
Now, believe me, I'm not that lazy...sometimes..I mean who doesn't enjoy at least 4 consecutive hours of the Food Network??
I digress..

So, my mom has a small garden.
Some of which I have shared with you already (recall this Meyer Lemon tree?)
And it absolutely thrills me to step outside and enjoy the beauty of the leafy greens, slender beans, and delicate peas.
Also, there's just something so rewarding about cooking the vegetables that you (eh-hem your mom..) grew.
A few nights ago, Mother made Dad and I a delicious "Chinese food"meal using her very own green onions and bok choy. 
Naturally I followed her outside (camera in tow) while she picked her veggies.
This is what I saw:

Disclaimer: This is not part of the garden..We don't eat fire wood.

After about 15 minutes of shooting, Mother annoyingly informed me that her bok choy was tired of being photographed, and it was time to go inside. :)

How are y'all enjoying your Christmas break?
