A Busy Christmas!

My goal leading up to Christmas was to not overdo myself. I think I did great: one tree instead of two; minimal outdoor decorations; easy indoor decorations; activities for the kids that align with our existing schedule….

Most importantly: don’t bake everything!

We learned a few years ago that it was not worth our sanity (and waste lines) to attend every family function. So that helps!

I didn’t even bake cupcakes for my kids’ Christmas parties! In fact, I actually bought some shortbread cookies and sent them in with one of my daughters! *gasp*

As soon as the kids started their break, I let the fun begin!

Gingerbread houses (I didn’t even bake them from scratch! Again, *gasp*)…

And I even bought a kit from the store for myself!

Quick cookies…

Hot Cocoa…

Boiled Custard…

And my traditional Buttermilk-Glazed Mini Fig Cakes…

Hope everyone has a joyous Christmas season!
