my rambling christmas trip

I got Pete these as part of his egg-themed Christmas gift and we used them this morning and they did not work very well and I am devastated.

On a separate and more successful note - I just got back from my holiday adventure and man did I have a good time. I’d like to show you 1,000 pictures, which I will put after a jump for those of you who only come to this blog for my insights on policy and procedure.

First I went to Austin, Texas, to visit my sister. My parents met us down there and then we played a lot of ping pong. I can’t show you any pictures of my parents, because my mom requested that there be no “Facebook Instant Grams” of her. My sister made no such request, but probably will very soon.

Then I went to Nevada City to hang with Pete and get some Northern California mountain time. We built the worst snowman.

Then we went to a rental house on a lake (I won’t say which because it was a gross lake) to have a friendly new years.

Speaking of Facebook Instant Grams, I make them and my Instant Gram name is @brittappleton and it would be fun if we followed each other!
