“Celebrate the Quirky”

“Learn to chuckle over the silly slip-ups that happen every holiday.  You’ll find that happens every holiday.  Then write them down.  You’ll find that these mishaps often become the fondest memories of all.  “Some of our most memorable moments are the least expected, says Ronald G Nathan, an Albany New York, clinical psychologist.”

What was your fondest Christmas mishap?

I remember being super excited to bake cookies with the kids( mind you I can cook and bake cakes, but cookies, even the slice and bake don’t come out right!!).  One year we are slicing and getting ready to bake the cookies and we pulled them out of the oven and they were flat as a pancake and not done well at all.  I remember my  older son saying, Santa won’t eat those, I said we have store-bought cookies and my son said , “Santa only eats baked cookies, mom not the ones at the store”  Out of  the mouth of babes!!

We have a new tradition that we can share with Kaleb the baby of the family, Dad makes good cookies!!!!!!!

Make Christmas memories with your loved ones and kids, they grow up too fast!

What Christmas Traditions Do You Have?

Christmas is a time of the year in which most enjoy spending time with their families. Decorations are put up. Christmas cheer is spread. Traditions are made.  

How do you tie in the Christmas season with your fiance? Well, this is also the time of the year to create traditions with your significant other. As your relationship strengthens and you enter marriage, your significant other becomes family, and new traditions start to unfold.  Afraid of where to begin?

Kara from says one way to start the holiday season is to,“take a break from the crowds at the malls and do some of your holiday shopping at local craft shows.”

As a fellow Do-It-Yourself enthusiast, I enjoy making crafts and other homemade goodies for my loved ones.  I also enjoy baking chocolate filled goods such as fudge.  Activities such as making crafts and baking with your fiance can be an enjoyable tradition as well as one that is more personal and intimate.  This gives you and your fiance a chance to spend the holidays together, while creating meaningful traditions; sending out homemade goodies to your other loved ones is a way to incorporate them into this new found tradition.  This lets your loved ones know that you care about them through the work invested into making the goodies.  

With the comfort chocolate provides me during the holidays, I will be enjoying this holiday season with my significant other, baking and decorating whilst taking sips of hot cocoa.  Take this time to enjoy the holiday season focusing on spreading love and cheer.

“Tie One On”

“An apron, that is.  Wearing a pretty holiday version will help you feel festive and it’s a nice way to get yourself  psyched up to bake five dozen cookies and more!” Better Homes and Gardens

I have a red apron that I love to wear when cooking or baking during the holidays.   Do you have a favorite color apron? I know I love to bake during the holidays, cakes and breads that is! A funny thing about me is that I can’t bake a cookie to save my life, lol not even the store bought cookie dough.  For some strange reason they never turn out right for me.  I can bake cakes, pies and fancy stuff like that.  Now Marcus, my dear hubby, is the official Santa cookie maker. He bakes cookies all year round!

A good friend of mine, The Newlywed Guru has the cutest aprons, check them out on her website! Now for all those newlyweds married up to 95 years, there is a great cooking show for couples that you can join in as something special to do with your spouse. Check it out here….

Merry Christmas!!!
