Holidays 2009

Like any other holiday, we spent this one traveling. It happens when your parents and his parents live at opposite ends of the state and you two live a couple states over.

Crashed with the wonderful DeAngelo's in their new home in Lucedale, MS, on our first night out of Alabama.

Christmas with Mom's family in Kenner. My grandparents were just delighted with their new family portrait.

We watched the Saints with Clint's family at his baby brother's great new house. Gumbo courtesy his mom, of course.

Headed to NOLA.

And wandered the streets for an evening.

Browsed the French Market and fell in love with a piece from a local artist. Merry Christmas to me from Clint.

Then Ruston-bound for a visit with

my family (well, just Mom and Dad here)

and old friends. I wonder who she gets her looks from.

A quick drive to Arkansas

To see the one and only Jenny.

Pulled out my first digital camera while at my parents' house. This is the first digital camera from which The Tech Talk regularly had images. Crazy!

That's right. 1.3 megs. oh, my!

In the middle of all this, I got to see lots of old friends (the old roomie and her husband; an old dorm buddy, her husband and little boy; and an old photo classmate) and even the old boss in Ruston. Spent lots of quiet time with the families and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Clint came home with bronchitis, sadly. But not before my mom took him to the doctor and sent him packing with lots of meds, of course.
NYE was incredibly uneventful and I'm okay with that. Now to just finish resting up with the weekend before heading back to a new year of work.
