Weekend in Photos // Dickens of a Christmas

Sunday, December 18, 2011

My "weekends" in Roanoke are always a blur, because they aren't really weekends; they're just Friday nights. 

Rob and I drove through the rain on Friday afternoon and got to my parents' house around 3:00. It was freezing and rainy the whole time. My mom had tea at the ready. I forgot that I hadn't seen their house all decorated yet and it was such a pleasant surprise. Let me tell you, my parents' house at Christmas is a special kind of wonderful.

We went downtown for dinner and to walk around Dickens of a Christmas, which is sort of a tradition.

Friends, family, food, dogs dressed up in funny clothing, and lots holiday fun. 
What else do you need around Christmas?

PS Giveaway tomorrow!
