S: Chris and Anna
FC: Chris and Anna Thanksgiving and Christmas Break
1: For Thanksgiving, Chris was too busy with basketball to be able to come down to Brawley, so I went to Alaska to spend the holiday with him. Then, during Christmas time, Chris, his dad, and brother came down to SoCal to spend some time with me.

5: How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said. ~Victor Hugo
6: Cause I just want you here tonight Holding me so tight What more can I do? Baby, all I want for Christmas is YOU!

12: When it snows, ain't it thrilling, Though your nose gets a chilling We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way, Walking in a winter wonderland.
14: It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts Take a walk with your favorite girl It's a sugar date, what if spring is late In winter it's a marshmallow world. -Dean Martin
15: Off with my overcoat, off with my glove I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher So I will weather the storm What do I care how much it may storm? I've got my love to keep me warm! -Dean Martin | 11/27/09
16: Hula Hands! | Chris and Steve up to no good with Brett's car

23: It’s not easy when we’re apart So when I can’t hold you in my arms- I hold you in my heart. While the Lord watches between me and thee-Mizpah He shines his light on our path with his-star. We’ve made it this-far, so maybe don’t fret Ignore every threat-they’re miniscule, sorta like Brett And when we leave, you’ll be on my sleeve It’ll read Reeves, until I take a knee. So, let’s find the ring, then skate the rink. Wait for spring and maybe fate will wink. Got a whiles to go, but it’s worth the separation I fly to you, to fly with you, levitation. I cherish everything cause I know I’m gonna miss this So before we part, here’s one more Merry Christmas. -Chris
25: Because in everything I do You always have a part, Because a loving thought of you Is always in my heart, Because each little wish of mine You've tried to make come true -- At Christmas time, I want to say How dearly I love you.
26: Some people know they're meant to be together. -Sex and the City | 12/24/09
27: You may hold onto some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost. -Kaleel Jamison | Relationships--of all kinds--are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers.
