I’m a big fan of the game of “tag.” Actually, I take that back. I liked the physical game of tag when I was a kid, but now that game somehow morphed into a game of “phone tag.” I hate phone tag (is that strong enough for you? Hate.. don’t use that word much). However, this is a game of tag I can get behind.
Nae and Mandy, being the sweet friends they are, tagged me. Anna, bless her heart, did the same survey but didn’t tag anyone (you rock). So, to complete Nae’s request:
1. Choose the 4th picture folder on my computer
2. Choose the 4th picture
3. Explain the photo
4. Tag 4 others
Here it is! It was actually from last weekend in NY. I’ve always wanted to go to NY to see the Christmas lights, and made a vow that I would once I moved to DC. We made an impromptu trip, stayed at an apartment we found on Craigslist, and did the Christmas thing all weekend. As you can tell by the red nose and rough face, I was sick the entire time. But, we had a blast!
Now, for Mandy’s tag. 6 Random facts about Amy (the Christmas version):
1) When I used to decorate the Christmas tree at home, I had 3 “ugly” ornaments that I always put in the back of the tree. No lie- they were gross and scary.
2) There is one light display that I must see whenever I go to Wichita for Christmas. I saw it last year, and it was just as breathtaking as when I grew up. It’s a house in the Riverside area that puts baby Jesus on the roof. So many childhood memories.
3)I cannot make molasses cookies.. I determined this last night.
4)Favorite Christmas song: O Holy Night
5)As much as I love the season change, I miss wearing flip flops around Christmas time. The South spoiled me.
6) To me, the beginning of the Christmas season is marked by the red cups at Starbucks. Once I can buy a gingerbread latte in a red cup, I can start Christmas shopping.
There you go! So, now I’m tagging Em, SB, Eeka, and Meaghan. Have fun!
#1 and #2 made me smile! Think I know exactly what ornaments they are and just think…. they’ll be passed on to you someday!
As for the molasses cookies – they’re a pain in the neck to make aren’t they? But sorry sweetheart…. I’m sure they were delicious.
