Christmas Eve Dinner

Every year since we got married, Kathleen and I have spent Christmas Eve at home making a special dinner. The first year was Cornish game hens, then a whole roasted turkey, and this year we made rack of lamb.

Ready to eat!


It was awesome. This qualifies as the most expensive meal I’ve ever prepared at home, but was totally worth it.

Long Weekend + Snow

January 22nd, 2008 | 11:58

I love three day weekends. And it snowed! We called up Liz on Saturday and took some more engagement pictures in the snow (see my photography section, or flickr page). The we went out for a fancy dinner to celebrate our engagement anniversary.

On Sunday we went down to Newnan for Brent’s birthday and played Scene it – Music Trivia. Also, Eric and Kelly brought over their new dog. Which proved to me that not all Dachshunds are loud and yappy (sorry mom).

Then on Monday we sat around and did absolutely nothing. We played some video games, and I worked on my website. I did some more work to my photography section by adding some sweet AJAX and using the flickr API to make a filter of tags. So, check it out.

The Holidays

January 2nd, 2008 | 10:55

The past two weeks have been so busy and so fun. I had a five day weekend followed by a four day weekend, and I only used two vacation days.

On the 21st, we went to Misti’s birthday party which was a lot of fun. Then I went down to Newnan for a couple of days. Then I played Guitar Hero 3 for a couple of days. On Sunday, went bowling with Kathy, Brent, Alexis, James, Eric, Kelly, and Maura, then Misti came over and we watched Blood Car… James and I got a little crazy that night and didn’t go to sleep until after 5am. Then we all got up and walked to breakfast at the Majestic. We celebrated New Year’s Eve over at a Liz and Matthew’s house. We met a lot of new people, and got to see Brian and Leah who we hadn’t seen in months.

On January 1st, Kathy and I went to what is becoming our traditional New Year’s Day lunch… Indian buffet. And then James came over again. I’m glad we got to see him so much before he heads back to Scotland.

And now I’m back at work, but at least it’s another short week.
