A whirlwind of activity!

We have been so busy lately! I have been trying to take and upload pics, but they are kinda few and far between since we’ve had so much to do this month. So to catch you up a little, here’s a post with a little bit of everything in it.

As the last part of K’s protein unit in her cooking class, she made deviled eggs (okay, so we all helped, it was kind of fun!):

And then, even though I had already made a very cool cake for K’s birthday party, I couldn’t have her without some candles to blow out on her birthday, so I made her a giant cookie that said Happy Birthday for the actual day. I made it in my cast iron pan, and lemme tell you, that was sooooooo easy, and much appreciated by the birthday girl…she’s always wanting one of those giant cookies for her birthday (she’s not a big cake eater-she’ll eat mine, but that’s about it), so it was a very fun suprise for her. We also bought a couple extra birthday gifts to give her on the actual day, because both parties she had were before the actual birthday and it just seems wrong for a kid not to have birthday gifts to open on the big day, you know? Anyway, here’s the cookie:

The day after her birthday was Christmas Decorating Day at our house, so I made some of my famous Double-Chocolate Hot Cocoa with extra marshmallows for all to enjoy, here’s a pic of our mugs all together:

And one of the tree…this was our first year having a “blue” Christmas, so after finishing the tree, we realized we didn’t have a silver topper and that the tree was still missing something so we ended up purchasing a new silver tree star and some sparkly silver and blue ribbon (it was fun picking it out together-we were already planning the next themed tree we want to do). Anyway, all that to say, this isn’t the complete tree, but this was taken before we got the star and the ribbon on the tree. I’ll try to post a completed tree picture later.

And the tree skirt-isn’t it the prettiest?

And our couch, newly adorned with the beautiful fleece blanket a friend of mine made and gave to me through a Christmas Gift Exchange at the church…we are just so blessed!

K, I have more photos to share, but I’ll save that for a later post. Hope y’all are enjoying the holiday season as much as we are!
