Hot For The Holidays and a Christmas Makeover

Hot for the Holidays

Well, the scale is soooooo not my friend today.

Now, to be fair, I am not at all surprised - I mean, c'mon, I have been baking all week!

And oatmeal raisin cookies are my favorite. And, the make a might tasty breakfast. Healthy too, what with the oatmeal and raisins and all! Right? (It works better if you don't think about the 2 sticks of butter!)

However, it was not as bad as I thought it was gonna be. I only gained 1.6 - which means I get to keep my 15 pound down badge (barely!), so I will not complain.

The hard part is that we still have a whole batch left - plus a batch and 1/2 of the dinner rolls. Have I ever told you that I am a carb addict. Oh, yes, I am!!!! Thank you very much!!


In other news, Christmas has exploded in my living room! And, it would seem on my blog! How do ya like the Christmas makeover?

Now, the header is only temporary - we are hoping to get some Christmas pics of the girls taken this weekend for our Christmas cards. Once we have those pics I will redo the header. But, other than that, what do ya think? I kinda like it!!!

OK, Sophie is down for a nap, so I have a couple of hours with only one child to trip over, better get the village and nativity while the getting is good!

3 of ya left some love:
