Christmas & New Years

Christmas was a fantastic 7 day event!  

Day 1

We kicked it off with the annual Honeycutt Christmas Party.  It was a great night of food, fun, family...and Dirty Santa Bingo.  Imagine this: the rules of white elephant and $5 mystery gifts, but instead of getting a number, in order to get a turn you have to win a round of holiday Bingo.  

These were our spoils (hint: the Scrabble SLAM was mine):

It was Italian theme, so what a better contribution than delicious Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake.  I hardly ever make cheesecake, since it is last on Wesley's long "I love desserts" list.  Thankfully, the rest of his family loves it, so I didn't feel guilty.  I was able to snap a photo just before we cut into it:

Day 2

Another day of Honeycutts!  The highlight was the all too intense monopoly game.  I confess, monopoly is not one of the games on the top of my list, so Penny took my place on Wesley's team:

 It was a good match - they won!

Day 3

We spent Christmas day with my family.  It was so great and relaxing.  I LOVE my family! In true Helveston tradition, we had a fabulous Olde English Christmas complete with standing rib roast and yorkshire pudding.  The dogs got these to nibble on:

Candy cane rawhides!

Day 4-6

Our Christmas present was our trip to Charleston for New Years.  

We had a great time roaming those gorgeous streets, shopping at the market, and eating at Charleston's finest.  My favorite place was Poogan's Porch.  It is a life experience must!  If you need a direction - the shrimp and grits are to die for.

Day 7

Probably the most exciting day of all was yesturday....when Wesley got offered a job!  He will be starting as a programmer at Supply Point Systems on Monday!!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
