I've been doing a little bit of Christmas crafting and baking and wanted to share:

These are pages from some books that I am making for my neice and nephew for Christmas. Each page features a letter of their names and an animal/word that starts with that letter. I got the idea from Etsy and fell in love with it. One book is done an the other still needs quite a bit of work...

And Lilah and I made some sugar cookies tonight - well, mostly she just licked the beaters and ate the cookies with her bedtime milk. Still, a sweet partner for sure :)

And this project isn't for Christmas, but in preparation for our newest little one, we've been trying to reorganize rooms, etc to give everybody their own space. Lilah's toys are all downstairs in a spare bedroom/toyroom now. Anyways, I made some canvases to tie it all together. I probably should have taken a shot of the rest of the room so you can see how it all came together (plus see the great quilt that my aunt made us as a wedding quilt and is now on the bed in that room) - another post sometime... Oh, I must say that I did not come up with these all on my own - they were inspired by these.

And, last but not least - I had to share this because I think every woman should know this recipe. It's the easiest, quickest way to get a couple dozen warm cookies on a plate in a pinch. Just three ingredients:

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
1 egg
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter

350˚ for 10 minutes.

Made some for my thanksgiving because my brother-in-law always appreciates them. And when it's that easy, why not?

And, I leave you with this:

I cut Lilah's bangs myself today. I decided that they grow way too fast to be running her into a salon to keep up with them. All in all, it didn't go too bad. She sat pretty still (because of the handful of M&Ms) and it came out pretty straight. But, I don't think I'll be quitting my day job any time soon!


  1. I haven't made those PB cookies forever; they look SO good!!

  2. Loved this post. We're caught up now. :)
