Winter Break

We had so much fun spending the last two weeks with our families in Houston. We...

- Ate tons of delicious food. Pappasito's, Spring Creek Barbeque, Which Wich, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Bluebell  ice cream, Chick-fill-A chicken biscuits, a fancy night out at a Hibachi Steakhouse. Not to mention all the tasty meals our parents cooked up.
 - Played tons of games, like Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan, Dutch Blitz, and Pit.
  - Rented good movies. Our favorites were Flipped and Despicable Me.
- Caught up with all our best friends.
- Saw interesting exhibits at the Natural Science Museum.
  - Shopped for sale Christmas decor at Anthro, Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn.
- Officially changed my name and only spent six hours at the DMV doing so.
- Played with my family's adorable new puppy, a cocker spaniel poodle mix named Waffle.
- Took family pictures. More on that to come soon!

We were a little worried about our first Christmas as a married couple, but it worked out really well. Our system was to spend about three days with each family and then switch. We moved between houses four times over two weeks.

We went to Christmas Eve Mass with my family. On Christmas morning, we opened presents with them and had a pancake brunch. Then we opened presents at Adam's house and had turkey dinner there. We spent New Year's Eve playing games with both of our families.

We miss everyone already!
