I remember.

Have you ever been going about life when, suddenly, you hear a song that brings up a certain memory in your head? But it's not a specific memory, because you can't really place it. Yet, you're sure you know that tune.

I'm positive that somewhere, back through all my memories and hidden in all of the nostalgia, "Drops of Jupiter" is playing in the background.

Oh, so that's what cousins are for...

Part of our fantastic Christmas vacation in Alabama.

I love this picture of Jess! I was just playing around with my camera, then looked at the picture and was super happy with how it turned out. Gotta love my accidental skills.

Clue. A fantastic game made even better by all of the childhood memories it's in. We played it cut throat, too. :D

Mocha frappes.
Elise is our expert yummy-goodness maker.

This game was way more fun than I thought it was going to be. Way. You had to guess who, what, or where you were by asking "yes" and "no" questions, only. Jess really was horrible at it... Cute and clueless! I, however, guessed I was Clint Eastwood in 5 questions. OH, yes. That's on my list of great accomplishments. :)


I was so happy we got to be in Alabama! And that Jess was there, too. It really was an awesome holiday filled with games, treats, laughing, movies, recalling funny memories, lounging about in cozy blankets, hot cocoa, and remembering just how much I love the people I get to call family.

Thank you, Lord!
