The second installment of photos from visiting our families in Houston a few weeks ago! My niece Daphne playing with a roly-poly. Alena playing with my old dollhouse. Daphne could kill someone with this look! I hope you remember my beautiful nephew Lennon. This is his perfect little family! The whole group! I brought in the crocheting project I’ve been working on, but as soon as the girls saw, they insisted I teach them. They gave up pretty easily, though, and instead enlisted me in making them these cute headbands (Alena had a necklace instead–I didn’t get a picture). Avery was posing (“like I’m graduating!”) with the Nancy Drew books I gave her for Christmas. I’m not really sure if Joseph is up to this whole uncle business. I mean, come on.

Photos featuring myself, Joseph, a few family members (niece, sister, & my sister-in-law and her boyfriend), and my lovely friend Asma.

I decorated in the same way I did last year but added the tree and a couple other little decorations I picked up along the way. I also knit Christmas stockings for Joseph and myself, but you’ll have to wait until next year to see them! Joseph is such a good gift-giver, especially when it comes to jewelry! He gave me this double-stranded pearl bracelet for Christmas He also gave me this amazing owl bookend! I’ve been owl-obsessed for a few years now, and this is the first time Joseph…
