Our Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas! Although Will did celebrate his first Christmas last year (at 2 months old) I keep thinking that this was his first Christmas. He definitely seemed to enjoy this one a lot more!

This is the first year I have had time at home to make lots of yummy Christmas desserts! Within the 2 weeks before Christmas I made: Baklava, Chocolate Fudge, Cream Cheese Brownies, Oatmeal Scotchies, Biscotti, Cookies and Cream Fudge, Peanut Butter Balls, Galaktoboureko, Cinnamon Rolls, and Soda Cracker Toffee. Phew. I think that is everything!

I love Christmas, but never liked the stress of gift shopping. Not knowing what to get, and getting something just to have something to give. This year with money being tight, we went real lite on the gift giving, and I made all of my gifts.

Our church had a very nice Christmas Candlelight service. I loved getting us all dressed up!

We went over to my family's house Christmas morning for gift sharing and a GREAT breakfast (thanks mom!).

Red Kitchen

I spend a lot of time in my kitchen: Eating, cooking, cleaning, eating again. I enjoy spending time in there too. I wasn't happy with how it looked though, so I decided to paint it....RED!



I LOVE my new kitchen!
