Today the kids and I...

Decorated/Ate Cookies
Tried out the Bumbo seat...I knew he'd love it.  We must find ours!

After we got home from our marathon day of visiting teaching, the Lu and I decorated cookies.  It's the only Christmasy thing I've really enjoyed this year.  I loved sitting at the table, with her narrating everything she was doing and being creative.  It definitely sparked in me a love of cookie decorating.  Must be an adopted gene from Tony's side.

I haven't stopped baking...

Just because I haven't been posting here...doesn't mean I haven't been baking.  I've got a little bit of a backlog of recipes to share with you.  I'll start with the torte I made for Mom's birthday.  It turned out almost perfect.  I forgot to temper the eggs so they separated, I didn't have enough chocolate to start over so I just went with it and it still turned out really good.  I would like to try it again and have it all go right though.  The best part was Mom loved it and I love that she loved it.

Feeling a little neglected...

I'm sorry readers...you can definitely tell when things are busy around here...blogging tends to head to the bottom of the very long to do list.  I feel a lack of words to describe life right now.

Tony's grandmother passed away on the Friday after Thanksgiving.  We gave thanks for our many blessings and know Grandma is greatly missed.  We've been spending time with family and slowly preparing for the holidays.  Hopefully I'll get my blogging mojo back soon.
