On Friday, December 13th my ladies Bible study shared a Christmas dinner and Secret Santa gift exchange at Galli, an Italian restaurant in SoHo.
The next day was an incredibly magical snowy day and I attended a potluck brunch/Love Actually viewing party at a friend's who lives in the Financial District. My favorite dish there was these sour cream pancakes, we couldn't get over them!

That night I rented a car with 3 friends and we headed to Brooklyn's Dyker Heights Christmas Lights. We had all seen this neighborhood's Christmas lights on the Travel Channel Christmas specials growing up. Of course it was so cold we just drove around the neighborhood and only jumped out to take the middle photo below.
On Saturday, December 21st Clay and I hosted our Hillsong's Connect Group's Christmas Party at our apartment. Another potluck style party where we exchanged Secret Santa gifts and played Taboo, the ladies won!
Mom returned to New York City to celebrate Christmas with us. On Christmas Eve we watched Saving Mr. Banks and attended Hillsong's Christmas Eve Service. Christmas day we spent at Da's house with Mary, Annie, and Tom!
