There's less than two weeks until Christmas! wowzahhh. I have one or two more presents to pick up and then I'm done shopping. Here's what else I have been up to lately:
Loving: The holidays with a baby! We went to the James Island Festival of Lights last week so Violet got to look at the lights and meet Santa. Her reaction was adorable. I was 99% sure she was going to cry, but she totally surprised us. The photographer was jumping around trying to make her smile but she was very serious. At least she didn't cry.
Making: Cookies!! This is one of my favorite traditions I always did with my mom. The holidays wouldn't feel right without her sugar cookies, peanut butter blossom cookies, and nerds. I'd love to try a new cookie recipe this year too.
Looking forward to: Christmas Day brunch. I'm thinking about making one of these options: cinnamon roll french toast bake - cheesy tater tot breakfast bake - best breakfast casserole
Shopping: Make or buy Violet's "first Christmas" ornament. Let's be honest I'm not a huge DIY person -- but I think I can handle this easy clay handprint ornament. And I bought this stork first Christmas ornament (see more personalized options here).
