I Love Christmas!

So, not to brag because I have to give Martha Stewart some credit, but I am pretty sure I made the best Christmas cookies ever this past week! They were amazing without the icing and got even more yummy once decorated. But did it take forever! I don't recommend doing cookies like these unless you have tons of time on your hands or are like me and you don't so you make time by staying up till 11 or 12 or 1 in the morning 3 nights in a row.
Shane had me make gift baskets for all of his employees that had 6 sugar cookies, 12 chocolate chip cookies, a loaf of cranberry banana bread (all of which were home made), almond roca, candy canes and a bottle of martinellis. Fun but stressful.
Last night we went to Oceanside for Tuesday's (my niece) birthday. For .2 seconds Liv wanted to dress up in the tea party clothes. But not a fraction of a second longer.

Thanksgiving Weekend

It was really nice to have Shane home so many days in a row. Olivia got used to having her daddy around that she is now asking for daddy all throughout the day rather that just in the evenings. We had a really Nice Thanksgiving even though I was up until 2:00 a.m. baking pies. Not a good idea when you are in your seventh month of pregnancy.
Shane played soccer in the rain with some people in our ward while I finished up the pies and then we headed up to my moms where the dinner was wonderful and then we headed down to the States home for the Hoy/States dinner.
Shane Finished putting up the lights around the house and i think that my inside Christmas decorations are almost all up. I'll be sure to take some pictures and post them soon.
This is kind of a dull blog, it's probably because I am tired. Better luck next time!
