christmas, family, holidays

{Christmas Snaps Part II}

As I mentioned Monday, we spend Christmas Eve with my side of the family. We decided not to do any gifts this Christmas as a lot of us flew in from different parts of the country (or the world!), and we figured time together would be the best gift we could get each other, anyway. We haven’t had a complete holiday, with everyone in one place, in a few years, so it made me ridiculously happy to fly back to Portland and get to experience that this year. The night was pretty low key. We ate a delicious meal, enjoyed wine and cocktails, and loved on Oscar, my sister Cristina’s new pup who she rescued few months ago. Then, we ended the night with a friendly game of poker (I actually didn’t participate, I was recovering from my food coma on the couch!)!

  1. Wow the table was so nicely set.Love the christmas tree. No decoration overkill – i love that. Oscar is a gorgeous little fella. xx

  2. beautiful photos! I wanted to tell you that I just read The Paris Wife by your recommendation! I loved it! I couldn't put it down. By chance, my boyfriend rented Midnight in Paris that night and I was freaking out that Hemmingway and Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald were in that movie too! Have you seen it? I have the itch to read some of Hem's classics now:)

  3. Oh my yum, that cake (pie?) looks out of this world! How special that you could all be in the same place and savor those moments together. Oscar is a real cutie! xo

  4. Just discovered your blog, you're adorable! I grew up in Portland and moved to Seattle a few years ago so I relate! I'll be following now 🙂
