Holidays 2008 (aka How Becky fell in love all over again)

Law school is a huge jerk during the Christmas season. Not only does she thwart any romantic holiday celebrating plans, she assails hot husband with stress, sleepless nights and FINALS!

In spite of her jerkiness, law school did NOT succeed in ruining our holidays. We had a cozy Christmas Eve celebration for two, a quick visit to Connecticut to see family and a rockin' New Year's Eve with our BFFs.

Take that, law school!

(As for Becky's love affair, she spent the holidays at the movies -- (nearly) ten times and still banana sandwich crazy about a certain someone...)

I hope you were as lucky in love this holiday season!

And now, for your viewing pleasure, Wickstrom Christmas 2008, in photos.

New Year's was spent eating, board gaming, shopping, golfing, laughing, fondue-ing, napping, movie watching and enjoying company of BFFs! We even pulled an all-nighter (don't ask how we felt the next day. We're totally not getting old...)
