Winter Break 2004-2005

I've continued the virtuous tradition of spending a week or two with my parents (and extended family) in Indiana, over the Christmas season. It is always a good time, and an excellent opportunity to rest, relax, and prepare for the coming year.

I've attached some photographs from the trip below.

The lovely winter scene of Los Angeles (Century City), from Mount Saint Mary's pool. Elizabeth and I went there a week or two before departing for our respective families (in Indiana and Colorado).
My little tree, decorated another year. I've had that since grad school. We had discussed getting a full size one, but time ran out.
We had our Borlik-family Christmas Eve celebration at my Aunt and Uncle's house. Not only was the tree well-stocked with gifts, but we also had the culinary expertise my cousin, Mike Borlik, the sous-chef of one of South Bend's finest restaurants. (Oddly enough, The Carriage House does not seem to have a website.)
That's actually NOT a burqa.
Christmas night, at the Borlik house.
Traditionally, we go to my grandfather's house on Christmas day, and have dinner there.
My dad and I, relaxing after another hard bout of vacation.
My family, celebrating another New Year's Eve.
There is no better way of starting off the new year than with a shiny hat and a measuring cup to hold one's drink.
It is my dad's 60th birthday, and so we had a nice dinner for that too. It was another excuse to get the family together.
The Borlik side.
