The Week of Christmas

We have spent the majority of the last week chillin around the house in our jammies. Watching lots of movies, baking and eating lots of sweets, snuggling, and playing.

After being sick with colds and sinus infections for the last few weeks Andon goes and gets the darn flu! Poor guy got really sick for 2 days then felt somewhat better for a couple of days and then threw up in the middle of the night and then felt better again. I think he's in the clear now. Fortunately Jared, Adelyn and I never got it!

We'll be spending Christmas morning here at home as a family then heading over to where our parent's live to spend the next couple of days with them.

I absolutely love this time of year!!!

But one mistake I made this year was to "bake" some Christmas gifts. I've only done it once, years ago before Jared and I got married and it wasn't the best idea then. Not that the stuff is just plain nasty. I just get really stressed about the whole thing. I feel like I have to deliver the stuff within an hour of it coming out of the oven and the longer I wait to give it the more stressed I get!! And not to mention the fact that I chose to make things that I have never made before. (Truffles and Toffee) Not a good idea people. Even though, oddly enough, the things I made that I never made before people have been loving and the other things that I usually make I haven't heard anything about. ;)

Anyways, I like the whole baking at Christmastime. It reminds me of when I was little. The smell, the tastes and just being in the kitchen together making all of it. Just not so sure about the gifting of the baked goods idea.

Andon and I did the gingerbread house this year. Daddy wasn't able to help but I think it turned out great anyway. :)

Addie in her jammies.... We haven't had any problems with her trying to mess with the Christmas tree. I think because we have a train going around it she doesn't want to cross the tracks! :)
