Winning & Baking

Hurray!! I won one of the giveaways from the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! I won a gorgeous fabric flower from The mab Blab blog. Can NOT wait until it arrives in the mail. Thanks, SMS, for the fun event (I discovered a ton of new blogs!) and thanks to Mab for the super fun giveaway!

So, I know I have relatively few readers still, but I would like to apologize for my serious lack of posting of late. My computer has still not been fixed, plus I just returned to work...and it's Christmas,  which has been INSANE. Every day I come home from my office, pick up my sweet baby girl, feed her, eat whatever Ryan made for dinner, and fall asleep on the couch with Lucie. Ahhh...hopefully I'll be returning to my energetic self some day. We'll see!

I have been sewing up a storm, and will be updating the blog about those soon, but right now I am in the middle of a baking storm! So far today, I have made chocolate fudge, dark & white chocolate peppermint bark, homemade marshmallows, and sugar cookies. My wonderful husband made the shortbread so I could feed Lucie, and now we are making stained glass window cookies. Soon we'll be done, and can go to bed...and then up early to make scalloped potatoes and maple carrots for our pre Christmas dinner with my mom's family.

Lucie will be wearing her "Baby's First Christmas" onesie tomorrow...what an incredible little person she is. She makes my heart so full. Love her.

Anyway, over timer just to ice some cookies and make some gift boxes!
