When I was younger I always dreaded the day after Christmas. Even though I had many new toys to play with, the excitement was over and I had to wait an entire year before it came again. Over the years that disappointment has turned into thankfulness for having such a wonderful family and friends, and being able to participate in such wonderful times on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I hope your past few days have been just as wonderful!
Remember all of those cookies I baked? On Christmas Eve, I discovered that my husband has a secret gift at putting together cookie trays. He made the ultimate trays – everyone has been loving them!
The picture doesn’t do it justice, but the cookies are literally piled up almost a foot high. Each layer is a surprise with more cookies underneath. :)
Now, I’m about to go eat some bacon and cheddar mac and cheese for breakfast since I don’t think I sufficiently stuffed myself over the last 2 days. I have visions of workouts dancing in my head.
