A Christmas Tradition

Every year Bridgette and I make homemade cookie on Christmas Eve to give to Santa and our family. It started out as just patterned cookies we covered with icing but is slowly evolving every year into other kinds. This year we made Peanut Butter Blossoms, shapes, Smore Bars, Brownie cookies with cream cheese icing and Soft Ginger cookies. We had a lot of fun as we always do!

Here's Santas scrumptious set-up:

Icing the cookies is the best part!

Bridgette's favorite job was unwrapping the kisses for the PB Blossoms. I wonder how many made it into her mouth?

Christmas at Grandmas and Grammy's

One of our many stops this christmas was at Grandmas. This little guy stole the show:

He was dancing to elmo and just generally acting cute as a bug!

Love this one!

Then we went Uncle Carl's and when we got back it was off to eat and open presents at grammy's:

I have a few more pictures of our annual tradition of cookie making on Christmas eve that I will post tomorrow!

Christmas at Home

A little birdy told me it was time to update my blog so here are a few pictures of Christmas morning:

Bridgette was so excited to get a D-Rex

Bridgette got me a cute little bracelet from the school store.

Love this face!

We were all over the place this year between grandmas, Uncle Carls and my mom's so I have lots of pics! I'll be back with more tomorrow...

Happy 92nd Birthday...

Here's a picture of my blowing out the candles on my 92nd...er....29th birthday cake last Tues. That's right, I am on the cusp of leaving my twenties behind!

I think I am ok with it. I still have one more year to get completely comfortable with being "in my thirties". I think what's really making me feel alright about the whole thing is that there is a bright side....Scott will always be older than me. Maybe it's just 6 months but it's all I've got and I'm hanging on to it for dear life!
