My December was relaxing and fun. I may or may not have spent the first 2 weeks waking up late, sitting on the couch, and watching TV. I think my brain and body were exhausted. After recovering from finals (2 weeks later), Chris and I headed to Portland to meet up with some friends and meet a new (little) friend, Jayden.
This is Chelsea and her little baby boy Jayden. I was so excited to meet him. He was excited too, because as soon as I picked him up, he threw up all over me. For some reason, baby vomit is not as bad a adult vomit.
We headed out to the Zoo to see animals and lights. The night was chilly, but it was fun to see all the decorations and even some furry animals.

A few days later, back in Seattle, it was CHRISTMAS. I got my first stocking ever!
Christmas was fun! This was my second Christmas ever and I am excited to start this new tradition

After Christmas I managed to go skiing twice and hiking as well.
Mt Rainier from a hike that Shelly and I took! - Poo Poo Point
Skiing at Alpental. Not as sunny as Crystal, but still fun!
Lastly, NYE! I was lucky enough to get invited to a friend's "cabin" a little south of Seattle. 20 of us drove down, brought alcohol and food and packed into a 3 bedroom house. It was perfect. I did not want to spend NYE at a bar and I was able to fall asleep at 12:30am on 1/1/2013. Yes I am a total dork, but at least I made it to midnight.
That was my break! Now I am going from sleeping 12 hours a day to working 12 hours a day (1st world problems - I know).
Here is a picture to leave you with:
Mickey and George love sitting in these boxes. It is just too cute.
Did you have any fun Holiday plans or trips?
