What I love about Christmas

1st I love getting all those great Christmas cards, each one has a wonderful family photo on it. I love seeing all those happy smiling faces every time I open an envelope and every time I walk up my stairs. Merry Christmas to you all. xoxox

I love decorating for Christmas. I'm a little crazy about it. I seriously think about it all year and I'm usually the 1st one to have my tree, last year I got it the day before Thanksgiving. Crazy right?! And I fancy myself a Christmas tree connoisseur. We've tried all kinds and I have to say so far my favorite is the Nordman Fir it has strong branches for my many heavy ornaments and does not drop needles. It's a perfect tree.

What I love most about Christmas is Connor! This year Connor is 3 and a half and he makes Christmas so much fun. We took a trolley tour of lights, went to the Christmas parade, met Santa for the 1st time, wrote Santa a letter for the 1st time, helped make xmas cookies and of course eat them. He made a card to leave for Santa with his cookies, wore antlers, memorized Christmas songs, ate candy canes, counted down with an advent calendar, listened for reindeer and sleigh bells.
I love the holidays!

I love the antlers Connor. I could just eat you right up, you're too cute!

Another thing I love about the holidays is making yummy treats cappuccino fudge with a crushed candy cane topping, chocolate cake with a ganache topping and of course cookies for Santa.

Daddy and Connor made awesome cookies. Chris you are my Cookie Man! Love you.

Over the years my DH has become quite useful around the kitchen. So much so that just about every time he cooks or bakes anything he wants me to come in and photograph the action.

Looking good darling! I'm glad you can't tell you are cooking in your boxers. Ha.

Chris is making Eggs Florentine Casserole
, he substituted breakfast sausage for the goetta.
It was delicious!

And of course watching Connor excitedly open presents on Christmas morning will never get old.
