I hope everyone had a nice holiday (or, at least a nice beak from work!). Joseph and I decided to put off making the long trip to Houston for a few more weeks, but his dad’s side of the family visited us a few days after Christmas. I’ve actually known them longer than I’ve known Joseph, so they are always fun to be around.

Joseph and I went out for Christmas Eve brunch, where I had this wonderful waffle (he had chicken fried steak and eggs–what a Texan)

We made gingerbread cookies on Christmas day! Joseph gave up on the decorating after a few tries but was much better than I was at cutting the shapes.

Joseph’s little sisters pampered Cory and Leonardo into oblivion.

Cory had so much fun playing with Caroline and Claire!

If you have musicians in your family, you know they don’t get together to play music–they jam.

The next day we all visited Joseph’s grandparents. This was the first time all their grandkids and spouses had been together, so we had to take a lot of photos.

This, of course, is the best picture of the night.

Wishing you all a wonderful beginning of the new year. See you in 2011!
