Tis The Season

I have always loved Christmas. It is my favorite time of year! I love the time with family, the decorations, the smells, the cold, just everything about the season just oozes HAPPY!!!

Last year was not the best Christmas season I've ever had. It just never felt like Christmas. My little sister had just moved away to Texas, it was warm(ish), I was swamped in school and work. I was really having a hard time getting into the Spirit. So my sister and I came up with this last minute idea to make Christmas candy. (Come to find out that massive amounts of candy will heal anything.) We had so much fun we decided to make it a new tradition.

Yesterday, Stacee called me and decided to let the boys make sugar cookies before we make the Christmas candy next week. It actually turned out really well, the boys had a blast and Stacee and I survived! So, I thought I will share some pictures. My Sister and Me. Two brave women!!

So, as you can see things got a little messy for poor Avery, but a good time was had by all! Next week I will go make Christmas Candy with Stacee and I'm sure I'll have pics of that as well.

Also, one more thing before I go, I want to do a post in the coming days of good gift ideas. If any of you want to share your favorite website that you have used to buy Christmas presents before please e-mail me with the details.
