It’s Christmas Eve! Woohoo! I have one gift to finish, a little grocery shopping, and a whole bunch of lounging around to do. And some pictures to show you.

This happy little tree belongs to our friends Adam and Beth. We went over to their place on Monday to play what seems to have been the last round of Rock Band on the XBox, for they got the red ring of death just a few days later. Boo! I snapped the tree because I’ve kind of adopted it. I like the cheeseburger ornament best.

On Tuesday I was taking pictures to use on the library’s christmas cards, and they turned out to be the only pictures I took that day. I like this one best because it has some nice contrast and pretty colors.

Another favorite ornament. When I was growing up my Mom bought me and my sisters a new ornament every year, and as a result we have our own collections now. She bought me this one at (I think) the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago on a Girl Scout trip when I was pretty young — 10 or so, maybe? The museum had all these christmas trees up and covered with ornaments from different cultures. I have no idea what culture this is from. I love it.

On Friday Maribeth’s graduating class hosted a dinner party for friends and family at Cliffbreakers in Rockford. Becky and Kori drove up from Texas for the holidays and made it up early for Maribeth’s graduation and dinner. I took a couple pictures of them in front of the lovely fireplace, one with flash (not flattering!) and this one without flash, which I did run through the Photoshop to upgrade the color balance and give it some brightness.

The cat loves this grey silk and wool scrap of yarn and will bat it around, throw it to herself, and hide it under the table leg, then work to get it back out again. Wacky cat.

A felted owl, by one Heather. I like to think I helped in the construction of this little guy.

The candle I lit on the solstice. Mmm… candlelight.
