Holiday Picture Post

Happy holidays to you all! It's been a busy week home and I finally have a chance to catch up on some blogging. Thought I'd share some of my Christmas photos and can't wait to see all of yours!

Outfit Details: Shirt-Walmart | Skirt-ModCloth | Shoes-Nine West


Me and dad. He loved the Christmas sweater I got him!

One of two times during the year that anyone eats in the dining room.

Not a holiday unless my mom has her giant pot out

Stuffed shrimp and potatoes

Beef tenderloin

Mushrooms and onions for the tenderloin

Ravioli from Arthur Avenue (Little Italy)

I spy burnt durkey onions. It's okay mom, all is forgiven. <3

My parents and my 92 year old fireball great aunt Teddy

92 years old and gets around faster than a lot of people I know.

Time for dessert

Expresso panne cotta

Homemade struffoli, and various homemade Christmas cookies. 

Pear Tarte

Grandma's famous chocolate cake

Besides a few glitches (like the burnt broccoli/cauliflower casserole and tipsy grandmas), Christmas in Connecticut was a success.
How did your holidays go? Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, another holiday, or no holiday at all, I hope your days have been the best they could be.
