Picture of the Week

Christmas celebrations have officially begun. Believe it or not, my sister and I did not just wander in to some strangers house over the weekend on the off chance we could get a good meal and a cool gift to take home. Our family is the ultimate melting pot...we just need for someone to marry an asian and then we'd be as diverse as the United Nations. This is the part of Christmas I appreciate--family. All the commercialization crap really gets on my nerves and ever since I transistioned from the kid group to the grownup group, I can no longer just arrive and collect gifts. But I have learned in my old age to look forward to the special time spent with family a whole lot more and this family right here is pretty darn special to me. In case you were wondering...there was pumpkin pie for dessert.

***A special thanks to my Aunt Sharon for making it possible. You rock.

Hi Brianna,

Wow your family looks just like mine! Most of my siblings are married interracially.

In fact I have a brand new little niece who would look perfectly at home in your family’s picture.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday. Enjoy!

LOL - I actually recently saw the family pic from when my Aunt Kathey renewed her vows and we're the WHITEST family around, so you did stand out more than in this pic - BUT you both were so damn adorable, I swear. I can't wait to have me some bi-racial babies!!! LOL
