finishing up the christmas and new year's posts

I have been one sick puppy the past few days (that's my voice, not adorable Dory's above), but I'm finally feeling a little more like myself.  I'm back to blogging today and sharing some final posts from my holidays.  You can still post Christmas pictures in mid January right?  Sure, why not?  So here's a few of my favorites from my Christmas, spent with my family in St. Louis.  First, my favorite little elf: Ms. Dory.

My mom's Christmas display in her new dining room - love how she incorporated the painting I made her!  What an eye she has!

One of my Mary's angels ornaments.  I've been getting a new ornament in the series since I was just a few years old.  Our family has a tradition of giving an ornament each year for St. Nick's Day.  Each St. Nick's Day I can expect a little angel ornament, and I love it.  Paul can now expect a Snoopy - how perfect for that beagle loving husband of mine?

Me and my Uncle Romie - one of my favorite people in the world.  He taught me to paint and how to identify deer tracks.  He can win court cases and make the best jambalaya you've ever tasted.  He has a great eye for art and a great talent for catching frogs and shooting deer.  He's a fascinating guy.

And then my cousin stole my camera and took about a million selfies.  Here's one of my favorites.

Diego and Pedro both dressed up for the holiday.  They looked very snazzy in their bow ties. 

That love of mine. 

More of my favorite people in the whole wide world.  We took this obligatory picture in front of my aunt's Christmas tree, and then we all stood right in front of it so you can't even see the tree.  And it looks like Pat just has a lot of bows growing out of his head.  I guess he's just fancy like that. 
Christmas seems so long ago now!  Was it just a few weeks ago that we were wining and dining with our family?  What a great holiday it was, and as always, I'm glad to have pictures to help me remember more fun times.
