I have a brother-in-law (and other holiday tidbits)

Christmas (secular style) has always been one of my favorite holidays. To my friends and family far and near- countless thanks for another festive and delicious holiday. I am so blessed to be able to close the year with such good company. Since Christmas is one of four days in the year that the Golden Bowl Chop Suey closes its doors, I reserve December 25th for family. Ga, Yun, Sum and I have always made it home for the holiday. This year, however, Yun stayed in New York, making it the first time we were not all together on Christmas. But there some other more positive “firsts” this holiday break–this was my niece Natalie’s first Christmas, the first time Goonjan proposed to Sum (there is a second proposal planned), and the first time Ga and I went “spinning”. And oh, there is also a notable “last” too–this was the last year for our trusty fake Christmas tree that has been in the family for over twenty five years. Sorry, Yun, you weren’t able to say bye to it. But here, you can see the tree in its final glory, and I have included some other snapshots. Enjoy.
