It’s that time again….
That time when we realize Christmas is just two days away and we can’t figure out where the month of December went. Seriously…. where did it go?
Derek and I packed up the car today and drove across the state to my parents’ house to celebrate Christmas Eve with my side of the family. Now that I’m here, it’s starting to sink in a little that Christmas is so close.
Did I tell you our tree bit the dust? We followed all of the instructions, but our little tree started giving out about a week after we bought it. Boo. That won’t stop us from buying another real tree next year. We just won’t buy from that particular spot again.
At least we have my mom’s tree to admire.
Keeping with family tradition, my mom, sister, and I spent the afternoon baking cookies.
No comment on the sugar cookies.
Remember kids, always double check you pressed start on the timer before turning around. Always.
Professional cookie decorators we are not, but I can promise they didn’t taste any less delicious this way.
My dad made stuffed peppers and cabbage for dinner. It’s something I always fail at making at home, but he nails it every time. Everything was delicious.
And the night was capped off with my favorite Christmas dessert.
I do not trust myself buying this stuff at home (I could easily drink the whole half gallon on my own), so I always wait and indulge at my parents house. It was egg nog perfection.
Time to sit back and soak it all in – Christmas is almost here!
Yep. Still can’t believe it. 🙂
