Christmas Thus Far

I have had the most wonderful Christmas break with my family! It has been so much fun to have every one under the same roof... even though there are 12 of us in a small apartment. We figured we all end up in the same room any way so why not make that 24-7. Me and Freddie got to New Orleans first and we spent the first couple of days going to Thibodeaux and looking at beautiful Christmas lights and just spending time with one another. Next came Emily and Jeremy and they are so much fun to have around. We went to my favorite restaurant in the French Quarter, Palace Cafe, and walked around the French quarter and ended our day by going to Cafe Du Monde to eat some Beignets. Next pulled up Jessica and Scott and their 3 kids who drove from Cincinatti. The Kids are getting so grown up and we have been having a jolly ol' time! I think one of my favorite nights in New Orleans was when me, Ethan, Jacob, Amy, and Freddie went to City Park to the Amusement Park. You should have seen Ethan's face when he rode the Cups for the first time. You would have thought he would be scared, but he was laughing so hard and he LOVED every single ride. I felt like a little kid again especially since we were with Ethan who just loved every thing. City Park had the most majestic feel and was so magical that night-- pretty much like all of New Orleans. I just love it here and I even thought about moving here when I'm older. I am so blessed to be here for Christmas and to have such a loving and caring family. I have enjoyed every moment with them.

Gotta love Louisiana juicy good finger-lickin' strawberries.

Beautiful house uptown on St. Charles.  I love the Oak trees here.  I always thought of them since a little girl as frames framing all of the streets and houses.
