Holly-jolly (part 2).

First ... did you know that if you accidentally press ENTER while editing your post title, Blogger will just go ahead and post it without the body?

Just learned that.

Second, here are some more pictures as promised.

We handed out several of these goody plates to our wonderful neighbors. Dill was insistent that we (meaning I) make four different varieties of sugary goodness. It took forever, but it was obviously worth it -- look how pretty the plates turned out!

Center: Grandma's Peanut Butter Fudge
Left: Devil's Food Cookies with Candy Cane Kiss
Right: Cathy's Famous Sugar Cookies and Cream Cheese Frosting
(family secret -- e-mail me if you want it!)
Back: Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Ah, it feels good to share the wealth. It's like I just gave you each a plate, too!

In other news, here's Bubby's precious Christmas dress:

Um ... you come up with a caption.

Black Friday, Gap, $12.50. That's just how I roll.

It looks like we'll be taking another one since 1) Bubby's face is ... I don't even know and 2) Smush is not in the picture. He doesn't really enjoy posing for pictures and it was just sad trying to get him to sit still for two seconds. He bawled hysterically.

I was going to post a picture of my tree all lit up at night, but I've yet to take a non-"burly" one (Bubby says "burly" instead of blurry). We'll see what I can come up with.

Four more days! What did you all get your family and friends for Christmas? What's Santa bringing?


  1. the treats were SO GOOD, thank you! i think the ginger cookies were my favorite but i did indeed try them all and loved every one.

  2. Very cute dress. And hey not your ideal smile but you will probably love it forever.

  3. ash used to "smile" like that all the time...we call it her pirate smile lol.


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
