Personal Side


Ahhhhh.....Christmas was wonderful. :)
We had a whirlwind weekend.
I worked at the hospital on Saturday morning and then we rushed out of town to visit family in Memphis.
We scurried back quickly EARLY Monday morning so I could get prep work done.
Then visiting extended family for Christmas Eve,
plus having our own little Christmas Eve and Christmas morning traditions here.
And then, suddenly......it was over.
Phew......and I'm so tired. ;)

BUT.....wedding prep kicks into full gear, probably on Friday......so I must rest quickly. heehee

My heart is full.
It is wonderful to reflect on Christmas pasts.....
and then sit in amazement at the memories we just made the last few days.
With our family headed toward a new stage in life.....married children......
I can only wonder how different things will be in the next few years.
So I kept telling my family, I am pondering these things in my heart. :)

Now we face the new year.
Wow......2013.
If I'm never blessed with anything more, I still have much more than I could ever deserve or imagine.
And I'm thankful.

Operation Wedding is in full force. :)

 Today we add details to all 180 wedding cookies.....can I hold my breath that long?? ;)

Done with 1/3......icy branches complete. Yeah!

I. am. done. So happy!!!!! Now I can breath freely again. Christmas and wedding....here I come. :)

I just decorated my first wedding cake. Haha....it's a 3D cookie and only 5" tall....but it is still my first. :)

Busy morning wrapping..... but I'm almost done thanks to Allison's help.
Then I'm off to prepare food ahead for Christmas Eve and morning.

Ahhh......wedding cookies ready, Christmas prep complete.....time to make some memories. :)

I love sharing your family! What wonderful memories you have made and are making. I would like to ask you two things. What brand of flour and baking powder do you use? When you have time, would you mind measuring 1 cup of your flour and then weighing it. I want to compare how much a cup of your flour weighs against how much mine weighs. Then I'm going to get mine exactly to your flour weight and see if that will keep my cookies from spreading.. Thanks.

Hi Lisa. I'm not sure my details will help, but maybe it will....so it's worth the effort. I use Aldi flour (very inexpensive) and Argo baking powder. I'll try to measure my 1 cup of flour in the days ahead. Write me back in a couple of weeks and remind me. Right now we are in the thick of wedding prep for Monday's big wedding. And then there will be lots of recovery time. I probably won't be back in the kitchen to make cookies for a week or two. Happy New year to you! ♥
