Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful holiday. I think I'm back. No, there have been no disasters or even anything new and exciting going on here, just life and the holidays taking over. We are still visiting family, but head home tomorrow. The boys have been brimming with holiday excitement (translation: the boys have been driving me crazy with all of their emotional highs and lows) for the past three weeks and I am excited to get back home and back to our normal routine.
I've been wanting to spruce up my blog for a while, and wasn't really sure how to do it (Sandi did everything for me when I set this blog up), so I just went for it tonight. Was anyone checking my blog while I changed it a million times tonight? It's a little cleaner and a little crisper. I have long loved photo headers and so I came up with something simple and quick tonight, but I want to get in the habit of changing my header more often, so hopefully I will learn some new tricks!
Lest you think I had forgotten the blog forever, there have been lots of plans for blogging in the last month or so which means I did take pictures. Here are a few to show you what I've been up to...
Stockings (with new pictures) and a new holiday banner were in the shop.
We attended the annual Christmas lights parade in our little town. Mother nature enhanced the mood with a bit of a snow storm.
We played in the snow and made our first snowman.
I made these fun snowman cupcakes for Peter's class party. A couple of M&Ms, a few chocolate chips, and a rolled out and cut orange slice and voila. They were pretty delicious too.
We enjoyed our December and I'm excited for a New Year with new starts and fresh feelings and no more Christmas treats around the house...they have really sabotaged my healthy living plan the last two weeks!
