This Christmas, a week before Christmas Day to be exact, I experienced a couple holiday firsts. Though I had a familiarity with Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, I had never read the famous tale or seen any stage or movie adaptations until last week. My family had the pleasure of joining my dad’s work cohort at ConocoPhillips in Houston.

The play was at Alley Theater, and we got to soak in the downtown lights from an upper story balcony before dinner.

We dressed to impress, and I loved wearing my pretty red dress. Tracy and I even got our nails done specially for the occasion. My red polish matched my dress.

I just basked in the glow of a fancy outing on the town.

This actual Christmas was the first one I'd spent without my brother (aside from the two I had before he was born).

Really I just got to celebrate early...

...and it continues when I make my way to another city next week.

It's about time to celebrate my birthday again. Maybe my brother can join me again for the next family gathering.

Happy holidays everyone! I hope you’re spreading out all the fun too. There’s so much to go around!
