Celebrating the 25!

Well I'm officially 25 years, 1 week, and 3 days old. Which also means I'm a little late posting this blog. Oh well.
Can you believe it? A quarter of a century old. Crazy!
Although I've been dreading it.. I was also looking forward to getting this picture.
3 generations.  Me. My Mom. and My Grandma.  25, 50, and 75 years old. 

I had a pretty good birthday week... starting with 2 snow days from work.. which meant I returned to work on my birthday.  It's ok though, I got free pizza for lunch. Yum. 
Aaron and I braved the snow/ice on the roads and had dinner at Olive Garden.  Thanks to my parents for the gift card!  He also spoiled me with beautiful cheery flowers.

We even put on the birthday celebration hats for a few photos. (Newton too!)

On Saturday we celebrated with our friends, Hibachi style.  I guess Hibachi is my new birthday tradition since this is year # 3 for doing it.

After Hibachi, we headed back to our apartment for cake (Maggie Moo's Oreo Ice Cream Cake... the best!) and Just Dance 2 on the Wii!

It was a wonderful birthday week!
Thanks to all my friends and family who wished me well wishes and celebrated with me. :)

Snow + Hubby = Love

 Some pictures with my love on our snow day. :)

They look a lot like the ones we took last year... except a little more green.

If only I had worn that purple coat...

Due to our recent traveling, Aaron and I missed Atlanta's first snow for the winter.. but we are home now and enjoying the beautiful dusting that's still falling. :)

Still hoping for a snow day tomorrow...

Christmas in Fast Forward

Aaron and I had a wonderful Christmas with our family and friends. It's not worth pretending that I'll post about each event, so here's our Christmas in fast forward snapshots.

We started our celebrating with our family picture in front of the tree then date night for Aaron and I. Dinner at Longhorns and a movie on the couch. We treat our last night at home before Christmas as our Christmas eve.

Our Christmas morning (but not really Christmas) started with letting Newton out of the room to go find his presents. He loved his bone.

Aaron always gets me glass bottle cokes for Christmas. One in the stocking, the rest in the fridge. Lucky for him, I share.

I got some beautiful gold Toms for Christmas.

Aaron got a Nook.

Then we went to my parents house... and played Candy Land. (and other games) (PS. There was no one under the age or 23 playing Candy Land... )

Got this really awesome bowl from my sister (Ashley). Handmade. I'm impressed.


Our Howell family on Christmas day

Ate lots of yummy food.

Got to see this sweet boy. He was a bit distracted by his Barney DVD we got him.

Dirty Santa with part of Aaron's family. Always lots of laughs.


and had dinner with some dear friends.

Even with all that, we still have one more (belated) Christmas gathering. Can't wait to see more family!
We sure were busy, but it was great. Surprisingly with all the busyness, we still got plenty of sleep, lots of food, games, and down time in. Ready for 2011!
