Wow! December was definitely a BUSY month!!! So many fun times and memories made! To make it simple, here is just a brief run down with pictures :)
Dec 9 - Kambry was in town from London, so all the girls got together at La Duni and celebrated Noelle's birthday!!! I cherish my friendships with each one of these girls! We have been best friends since the good ole days of DDD at Baylor and the Delta Mansion :) Can't wait to see what is in store for each of us in 2010 - we already know one baby and one wedding will take place...what else??
Dec 12 - Burdett Tacky Christmas! This an anual tradition that I look forward to months in advance! There is always yummy food, great friends and HILARIOUS costumes. This year the Burdetts decided to start naming winners for the costumes...don't worry, the Holmans won this year with our footie pajamas! Best part: they were SOOOOO comfy!

Dec 13 - Dallas White Rock Half Marathon! The very next day, B and I got up extra early, put on an extra layer of clothes and got to the starting line to run a quick 13.1 miles before breakfast :) This was my 9th half marathon! wow- can't wait to hit 10! It wasn't our best run - neither one of us trained very well for this one- but we still finished and are looking forward to the next one in March! No pics from this event - we had nothing on us, except a pair of car keys and ipods.
Dec 15 - Baylor Women's Council Holiday CHEER! - Such a great evening to visit with all the Dallas BU alums! You see friends you haven't seen in awhile, try great food/drinks - get recipes for ALL the treats and even door prizes! What a fun night!
Dec 16 - Patrizio's and the Rockettes! - As our Christmas celebration, Noelle, Regan, Leslie and I all got together to have a fabulous italian dinner with all the lights of HP Village and then off to the show! The Rockettes show was so fun! Those girls have some AMAZING legs and the most gorgeous costumes! I also LOVED the nativity scene they did at the end of the show- really incredible that they actually spoke from scripture and said the name Jesus in such a public setting. I think that is hard to find now-a-days. Most of the time people like to dance around the subject of our Savior's birth and the true meaning of Christmas, so it was a welcomed surprise to see it at the Rockettes show!
Dec 19 - Jen and Amy's BU Graduation! - can you believe it?? all of the Parker girls are finished at Baylor!!!! Mom and Dad were SO excited (to say the least)... they felt like they just got a HUGE raise :) To put 4 girls through Baylor tuition, living expenses, sorority dues, etc etc etc...that is a lot of $$$! Well, they are finally finished! Jen and Amy both graduated and looked gorgeous! We are SO SO SO proud of both of you and cannot wait to see what is in store for your futures! Jen has moved to Dallas and cannot wait to move into an apartment with her best friend, Megan, in Uptown! Watch out! These girls will take Dallas by storm!! Amy is packing up all her ski gear and warmest sweaters to move to Colorado Springs in just a few weeks! She will be attending the Focus on the Family Institute up there for the semester! I am secretly so jealous that she gets to go live in such a gorgeous part of the country - and ski her heart out! We love you! We are so proud of both of you!

Dec 22 - Dinner and Dessert with the Holloways!- YAY! The Holloways are some of our most treasured friends! We barely knew each other at Baylor- but we both moved to ATL at the same time and spent so many evenings laughing, drinking and confiding in each other. We watched them have their first little girl, Ellie and now they are about to welcome their son in March! They were back in TX for Christmas holidays and we LOVED getting to have dinner at Fireside Pies and dessert at I Heart Yogurt! We love yall and miss you! Thanks for making time to see us on your visit!
Such a sweet pic of Ellie...with just a little pizza sauce to accessorize
