The holidays around here…

A few weeks ago, I ran the Winter Classic 5k here in Cambridge, where most runners were better dressed than myself. IMAG1240

And faster than me, too.

I crossed the finish line next to this reindeer.

Some holiday lights downtown.

Festive light fixture.

A pile of gifts from my students.


Including a poinsettia to spruce up our apartment.

I guess my students want to make sure I am sugared up and caffeinated this holiday season.

Gingerbread French Toast at Cafe Luna. Delicious.

I’ll end this post with my not-so-good photo of some delicious Christmas cookies I made. (Recipe and better photos can be found here – I use fewer chocolate chips, peppermint extract instead of vanilla and peppermint cocoa.) IMAG1270

    We’ll have to work on clothing for you for next year! Gotta go—your dad is stressing me out. Claims Dillon’s present is not in his possession:(

    That reindeer costume is awesome! Maybe next year you and Nick can make a two person one.
