It's hard to believe that we are heading into February -- but as the old saying goes -- "Time flies when you're having fun!!!" Just a reminder -- on the last Friday of the month I do a blog post of my favorite things for that month. So because I did not do a "My Favorite Things for December" -- I wanted to add it here on the last Friday of January, 2014.
My favorite things that I want to share for the months December/January is of course celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. CHRISTMAS! Everyday is a day of celebrating Jesus -- but this time of year just the songs and traditions make this time of year feel laid back and festive. This is such a special time for me and my family -- we have so many traditions and it's just nice to take a breather at the end of the year and just sloooooooooow down and relax. We have our activities we do in our church but at home we enjoy decorating and cooking for this season. This year, just to make things easier, all our Christmas shopping was done using Amazon.com and delivered right to the door (that was awesome -- that just may become a tradition to keep). Just wanted to share pictures of our annual Christmas bake for 2013 -- we added a Gingerbread house to the mix.

We had an awesome time spending time with family and friends. This is the time of year when I enjoy eating whatever I desire. It's nothing wrong with eating right 80% of the time and enjoying your favorites 20% of the time.
