Christmas Recap

We had a wonderful Christmas holiday spent with family--LOTS of family. And we're not done yet!
Here are just a few of the highlights:
  • Biggest Ooh-aah gift: Pearl pendant necklace from D
  • Goofiest moment: D and BIL telling stories from their childhood at MIL's family dinner--these stories are ridiculous and almost seem fictional, but everyone remembers them so unless it's a conspiracy I think they're true.
  • Most wonderful/useful gift: Wrought iron bed from my parents--we are so excited for it to arrive!
  • Yummiest food: Ham at D's aunt's on Christmas Day, wreath cookies by SIL and brown sugar bacon with my parents.
  • Best gift given: iPod to my mom with pink ear buds
And yes, I did finish all of my holiday baking--well, the revised list of holiday baking after the snow storms prevented me from making it to the grocery story for more ingredients on Sunday night. What? I shouldn't procrastinate? Whatever. I made Oatmeal Scotchies, Peppermint Patty cookies, Sugar Mint cookies, baked French toast and baked brown sugar bacon. I plan to make vanilla bean biscotti and caramels for New Year's as those are mostly for my family anyway and we will likely spend the evening with them.
