My brother James and his wife Elizabeth sent the cutest Christmas card of all time. I thought I'd share it with you all. I love seeing pictures of them together. They are adorable.
My brother got married and I was honored to be a part of the wedding! Here are some pictures of the event.
Getting into the Wedding Dress
We had the Salaita Lab and other friends from various labs over at our house for the first time this past month and it was amazing fun! John grilled out hot dogs, hamburgers and marinated chicken! My parents got us a brand new grill for the occasion. Thanks to all my friends for making this an extremely great time! My parents and mother-in-law also got to come and enjoy it.
James proposed to Elizabeth in a hot air balloon!! We are so excited for them BOTH! And the ring is purely gorgeous! I am so proud to call James my brother and look forward to seeing their relationship grow!

The Elder Wand
One of our friends went Harry Potter world and saw Diagon Alley at Universal. They said it was absolutely amazing and brought back an elder wand.
Mom got lots of glowy things for us to wear - blinky heart for dad, a flag flow stick for herself, a blinky bracelet for her and I, and a ridiculous hat. The fireworks were great this year! We sat in the same parking lot that was shooting them off, which was AMAZING.
Dad loves photography and has a great Flickr site where he uploads the photos! Check it out here. If you want to see some of the pet photos he's taken, see my new pet's album here. The following are some of my other favorites that he's done.
