on december 1st my best friend from high school carin, and her husband cameron had their first baby, anna katherine. she was born at 7:48pm, 7lbs 8oz.
the rockefeller tree lighting ceremony was on december 3 and we spent the whole day in the city looking at the window displays on 5th avenue, dreaming big at tiffany’s, revisiting our childhood at fao schwartz, walking past central park, and finally, freezing our tootsies off just to watch the lights get turned on! it was definitely worth the experience!
this past weekend i visited the asbys and last night i didn’t want to leave! anna kate is perfect and tiny and such a true combination of both her parents. it was great to see carin’s mom and our zeta friend whitney.
i spent one night in houston with the parrish clan. we decorated the tree, listened to christmas music, and drank hot chocolate – unfortunately keely burnt the cookies, so those were pretty much untouched, except by jason. later in the night keely and i hit the toysrus sale before finally going to see twilight – both were a success!
for some reason it was harder than usual to return to jersey this time, but as we landed at newark liberty i looked out my window and saw the beautiful snowflakes, the first of the season! holidays make me nostalgic, and it’s hard to be so far from all that is familiar, but i guess for now…
let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
