As mentioned in a previous post, the Martin family had their 2nd annual Christmas dinner and light viewing party at me and my sister's place! It was a lot of fun. My sister (2.5 years older than me) pretty much did everything, from the beautiful decorations (I chipped in by creating the red banner that says "Merry Christmas"), veggie chili, a colorful salad, and warm apple cake with ice cream.
After dinner, we, once again, crammed into my parent's SUV and took off to the neighborhood next to us (yes, we "neighbor" the ritzy area of Dallas) for some amazing Christmas light viewing. We're getting ready to head out for a long winter vacation so we also opened some presents! (I got an awesome cookbook that I can't wait to use.)
The food, company & laughter made for a memorable evening! Check out the pics below of our cozy apartment during Christmas time. (Please excuse the sorta blurry images. They were taken with my iPhone, but I tried to doctor a few with an app.)
