Cookie Time!

its been quite a busy time of year over in our house!

we successfully hosted Thanksgiving (cooking a 20 lb bird and all of the fixings!) and we’re prepping to host Christmas Eve now!

here’s a little peek into what my kitchen looked like this weekend…maybe a real cookie post will come out of this too…

those were linzer tarts in the making

i didn’t try any but the boy said they were good 


Happy New Year!


I hope everyone had a safe new years eve!

A new year brings new beginnings.  I put my camera back in my purse and hope to snap more pictures here and there so they will somehow make their way to this blog!
I’ve concluded that I don’t have much to post about because I lead a relatively boring life! :)  Not that I mind…there’s enough things to keep me busy from day to day without having to worry about gossip and drama.

But this year we do have a new house…so maybe that will lead to some new adventures!  It’s definitely not leading to a new vacation this year….*shakes empty piggy bank*

Now off to do some more cleaning and organizing – that’s all I seem to do these days!



Happy Thanksgiving!

Gobble gobble!  :)

And if you were wondering, I missed this year’s Macy’s parade yet AGAIN!   It’s just not the same watching it on DVR!


Thanksgiving has long been one of my favorite holidays because it leads the way right into the Christmas season!  This year we will be spending it at my aunt’s apartment in the city.  Its going to be a tight fit for the 12 of us but we’ll manage.  I can’t wait to stuff myself silly tonight!

Each year I find more and more things to be thankful for…friends…FAMILY…health…the fact that I have a JOB…with all of our busy lives, sometimes it does take a holiday for us to stop, smell the roses and really appreciate everything we have.

I wish everyone a healthy and happy holiday with many more to come!


happy halloweenie!

Happy Halloweenie!

This has never been one of my favorite holidays but I guess over the years its starting to grow on me.
Now off to find a little kid’s candy stash to raid!  I claim anything with caramel! :)
