A few more pics from Christmas vacation that I thought would be fun to share =)
Bryan and one of his best friends, Chuck, whose parents throw an annual Christmas Eve party. They are Greek – yep, you know what that means…Ouzo shots all night long. Their parties have been known to get very interesting =) So much fun!
Our table the next morning for Christmas
My mama-in-law in action
Our Christmas desert – apple cranberry tart with maple candied walnuts – YUM
The table at Christmas dinner (cornish hens, homemade cornbread stuffing, parmesan zucchini and squash, sweet potato casserole, and congealed cherry/walnut salad)
The day after Christmas was winery hopping and some shopping (if you haven’t been to any northern VA wineries, definitely do it, they are fantastic and have definitely become some of my favorite wines) One of my all-time favorite wineries, Chrysalis
Their viognier? Amazing!
The Piedmont Winery
Dinner out at Ozzie’s in Fairfax
And finally a wonderful visit from cousin Laura, her hubby Greg and their adorable twins Sulley and Colton – so glad we got to see more family before we left =)

Hope everyone else had a wonderful holiday! Now it’s time to get back to normal back at home and start cooking for myself again instead of being fed by my MIL! (tear) Oh yea, and it’s time for New Year’s, can you believe it?
