MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: DECEMBER 19-25, 2016!
Days at work and with friends (mostly eating) leading up to the holidays. Then spending time with my parents in South Pas, wrapping gifts, making cookies and gingerbread houses with my little cousins, and soaking in the family cheer.
I love going into the visitor services suite because they have so much festive spirit
Another baggy new sweater
At the press preview curator talk of the new photography show. Snooping for stories.

A portrait of what I got in the advent calendar. This was probably one of my favorite things this holiday season. It was fun to pick out the even days for Zach, and be surprised by small gifts, but silly and semi-practical ones too 🙂

Took my parents to see Rogue One, they had never been to an Arclight and were like little kids in a candy shop. Excited to bring wine into the theater, and to have the tickets on your phone and choose seats ahead of time.
Look at that joy
After we had dinner at Islands, I used to come here with my uncle a lot. Fond memories of Islands even tho it’s OKAY haha
Not the prettiest wrapped gifts for my parents, but my mom told me not to use any of her ribbon haha

Auntie picked first in the White Elephant. I ultimately got stackable tupperware…PRACTICAL. The theme was “As Seen on TV”, so I’m happy we all get at least functional things for the most part
Played more with the kids upstairs, and headed home relatively early. My family had to pack for our usual wine country trip that we’d leave for in the morning.
Much love friends.
