Santa Made an Early Stop!

I made it on Santa's good list so he brought me these beauties a little early!

Carson has been fascinated with them. Quite frankly, I have enjoyed watching a little bit too!

I don’t know what I like most, the shiny red color, that it weighs the load and automatically fills the right amount of water, the amount of energy it will save, or the fun little tune it plays to indicate the cycle is over!

If only it would fold and put away the mounds of laundy I seem to do each week! That would definitely make for the perfect gift!

Christmas Traditions

One tradition that my family started years ago, is going to Winder Dairy for scones and hot chocolate! Because we lived in Arizona, the last time we were able to participate in this activity was when Connor was 8 months old!

This last week we joined some of my family members and we headed to the dairy for some good old fun! The scones there are so yummy!

Here are some pictures of the night.

Yummiest Cookie Ever!

This is the time of year for baking and sharing goodies! This is a must try cookie recipe. I made them yesterday and out of three dozen, there is just one left! I might be heading out to the store so I can make some more. These are so soft, chewy, and delish! Enjoy.
