Holiday Recap

Happy New Year!

Rich and I had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!  
We were fortunate enough to be able to take time off work to relax, spend time with family and friends, and relax some more.

  Poor Christopher has been in a neck brace since 12/5.  The story of why he is wearing it is a long one, but basically boils down to a freak accident and a series of really unfortunate events.   Hopefully he will get it off next week!

All the grands with their grandparents on Christmas Eve.

  Everyone had fun putting together this puzzle of the Chattanooga skyline.  I failed to take a picture of it completed but it turned out really cute.  Great gift for Christmas Eve when everyone is hanging out visiting.

Christmas Day Breakfast table

Sticky buns...a must!

My favorite gift was the record player that Rich gave me.  
Don't be alarmed by the Michael Jackson record...I have been a fan since 6th grade! Ha

On New Year's Eve Rich and I rode up to Point Park on Lookout Mountain.

If you have never been to Point Park you must go.  We arrived around 10 when it opened and were finished walking the park by the time it started to get busy.  We then headed down to the "valley" for lunch.  This is a great little jaunt to take when you don't really have any plans.

The views

For New Year's Eve we went to half a party at The was our first and last time...The most fun we had was outside the building on our walk home...

Photo tip: say CAT when posing for a picture and you will always look like you are having a great time...Rich is not doing it right.

On New Year's Day my mom cooked a wonderful lunch!  

Traditional New Year's lunch equals lots of money and luck for the the new year! We did not win the Powerball....
