Christmas time is come and gone

I love Christmas!!
This year I was challenged to bring the feeling of Christmas into my home. It was difficult. With me not working the funds are low and with a baby who doesn't know the difference yet it was up to me to participate in all things Christmas that we could. I usually have no problem with giving instead of getting but this year I couldn't just go buy a gift for someone. For a while this bothered me. Then I started seeing all kind of homemade goodies everywhere and thought about how much I love getting goodies at Christmas from people. So this year was my year to bake!!
I had SO much fun!!
Here are some pictures of my baking goodness:
Pumpkin Choc. Chunk Cookies

My first attempt at fudge!

Adam gave me a Christmas Bouquet

Dear Lavender

I am completely and utterly in love with you.
I love everything about you.
I love your wispy soft hair.
I love your long scratchy fingernails.
I love your squishy chunky thighs.
I love your clammy feet.
I love the smell of your breath.
I love your breathy laugh.
I love that you get happy and smile and kick when you see me.
I love that you twist your fingers in my hair.
I love your ear-bleeding squeals.
I love your snores.
I love that you 'talk' to your papa more than anyone else.
I love your bottom lip when you cry.
I love the way you make my home feel.
I love that you turned me into your mama.
I love you, and I always will.
