Christmas Eve @ DnA's
Here's a lil peek at Derek and Amy's at Christmas Eve Shin Dig......... i left out the dancing pictures, however Derek shirt so matched the rose colour pink of the Living Room.... twas sweet! So- since much of the pic's are a blur- that was mostly do to the fact that all the lights were MOVING and drew a bunch of people over to walk down the drive to get a closer look. Amy made some seriously yummy homemade pizza (would put Andrew to shame!) - and had some lovely noshes. I did make this Date, Ginger, Walnut, Flax and Scottish Whiskey Bread... that went over rather well. Derek and Amy got a HOOT outta the mega sized bottle of wine (with functional quick draw on the trigger wine opener with all the bells and whistles.) Jenna was dressed in this amazingly fancy blue gown.. - that looked amazing when Derek added the strobe lighting (yes, he did that and played some 80's 4/4 beat disco music- we had some on-lookers, and phil did open the door for them to get a better peek!) We sang carols at Midnight to welcome in Christmas day.... and shared some Friggin over the top Scottish Single Malt that Jenna got me as a Christmas present.!!! Now that was yummy.... not to mention the delish.. Mulled Wine and Wassail that Amy made!! John and Caroline were there... and John almost smoked us out with the Frankincense and Myrrh that i brought to get the scent of the Tabernacle.
My sister came over Christmas Day- which was a first in about 20 years that we've been in the same state... only bummer was i got a migraine from HELL.... and couldn't get off the couch..... it hit about 11 in the morning and didn't let up till about 20 hours later. - even 2 days later, i'm still not feeling up to par. Have not had a migraine in about 13 years... so i was NOT happy! Over all it was a good first Christmas in Austin..
Blessings ya all..... well see what the New Year brings.
