Baking Day and Glitzy Feet

The supplies:

The handiwork:

The sampling:

The partially finished product (phase I):
A little of our Christmas glow:

Rob in the spirit of the season:

  • Shopping is done for the kids! One trip to Target. Voila. I love this pre-list age. (Not looking forward to, "Mom, I want this and this and this...")
  • Thinking about the Mei Tei wraps for No. 3.
  • Thank you for bearing with my low-wordage, high-photo content posts. It seems that lately if I sit down to actually write something of value or length it never happens. At least this way I'm actually posting.
  • I'm trying to remember that the best Christmas memories will be with Mama actually being there, not rushing around trying to pull off every nuance of every last Christmas tradition elegantly.
Happy Weekend to you and yours.

The finished products look tasty! I'm sure the sampling was the beast part of the process. Every time I think I am done shopping, I find something else. Hope you're feeling well!

I love to cook with the kids, you never know what how it is going toturn out.

The baby wrap saved me...My first one was only 15 months old when the second one was born, so he wsa still very much a baby! People will stop you and ask all kinds of questions when wearing a wrap!

Are the fancy feet your stockings?

Your little girl is such a mini-you in the face, and her expressions ( from what i've seen in photos, obviously, as I don't 'know' you ... ;)
