New Camera Bag

My much awaited new camera bag has arrived! I bought this bag before our big car purchase, otherwise I probably wouldn't have this camera bag now! It seems to hold just what I need it to hold. There just enough room for my camera. The real test will come on Saturday when I have a wedding to shoot!

We had a very nice New Year. We stayed here in Chapel Hill and invited a few friends over. It was a fairly simple evening...we just played a game and talked. We intended to watch a movie, but that never quite happen.

I made a couple of snacks for everyone. These were bacon & pineapple wraps. The sauce that you put on them taste really good!

I also made these peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies...

And lastly I made these potato wedges. These were a big hit :) We also had other snacks that our friends brought along.

We brought down to the youth room (where the party was) our glassware using one of those kitchen trays that have 3 layers of shelves. Sadly we ended up breaking about 4 plates when the night was over :( I broke one of my favorite plates! Sad!

We played Partini....which was basically a lot like Cranium, but at little more difficult.

Before our guest arrived...

I wasn't really in a big camera mood once everyone arrived, so I have no photo's of our lovely guest! I'm glad they were able to come over and celebrate the New Year with us!

Amy's Birthday Celebration

Wednesday was Amy's Birthday. To celebrate we planned to go to an outdoor ice skating rink in Raleigh. We had a very hard time locating the rink which you would have thought would have been easy to spot. We actually had to end up asking someone. Her response to our question was basically, "Ummm, it's not much, but I think it's behind Starbucks." She was correct....it was over there by Starbucks. As you can see below it wasn't much at all! It wasn't even real ice. Amy & I stood on it briefly and it felt like PLASTIC! It was disappointing, but very funny! We actually did not skate even thought it was "free" since we brought can food. It normally cost $7 and I don't think I would have paid that!!!!

We had some time to kill before Kay & Amie met us at Crabtree Mall. We were all meeting there for dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Once they arrived we still had to wait for quite a bit, but we finally made it to a table.
I had a nice simple meal of bread, salad, chicken salad sandwich, & potato soup! It was a very pleasant meal. I was very sad that I wasn't able to afford a slice of red velvet cheesecake. The rest of the girls got different kinds of cheesecakes so I did a little tasting of all of theirs!

They came over and sang to Amy for her Birthday...

and then she opened a couple of gifts... :)

We always have a good time together. I have known Amy since she was six and I was five. I look forward to celbrating many more Birthday's with her!

Christmas Time Part II

After Chris & I left Mema's house we headed back to Chris' parents house.
Brodus enjoyed having so many laps to sit on, but he didn't enjoy Jess & Lee's dog, Sadie, too much! I'm sure Brodus had a hard time when we all left!

We had planned on going to a Church Service that night, but we decided to have Commune in their home instead. Once Jess & lee arrived Chris served Commune to us. It was really cool to be able to do this on Christmas Eve with our family.

That night we got to open one of our gifts. This is a tradition in the Adams' family!

Chris received so many much needed PANTS!

Christmas morning started off with breakfast...

Emma slept on my lap for a while :) This really is the life!

Chris' dad read the Christmas Story from the Bible before we opened gifts together.

We all had a lot of fun gifts in our stockings. They bought fun little books for us all!
I thought it was kind of ironic that I received this one since I tend to have bad grammar at times :) Kristi & Dr. Adams did confirm that they bought it for me because it was filled with pictures!
Memaw & Emma
Jess was not a big fan of this gift from Kristi & Ken to Emma :) It says "Born to be a Tar Heel."
We all just hung out after gift time.
They put Emma's bunny outfit on, which was so cute! She looks way cuter in her bunny outfit than the boy from "A Christmas Story."
I love the little ears and tale!
Momma (Jess) & Emma!
We shared dinner together that evening.

Chris & I headed back to Chapel Hill the next evening. We both had a wonderful time being home with our families! We are very grateful for what we have!
