Finally, a moment to visit! I have been crazy busy, (emphasis on crazy) since mid-November. We spent most of the week of Thanksgiving with our kids in Pennsylvania. What a wonderful time having all of us together for the holiday! That doesn't happen much any more so I treasure it when it does.
The following week our youngest daughter came home on Saturday for a daddy & daughter baking day. I love that they share those special times with their father. I get to hang out and chat and then we get to sample the results! What could be better? On this day they tried a recipe from a new magazine. It's a vegan chocolate tart with salted oat crust. Rich, decadent and so yummy! We aren't vegan, but we don't turn up our nose at recipes like that! I would make it again, but tiny pieces are all it takes to satisfy any one's sweet tooth. You can find the recipe here.
All that to say, I am just now getting things in order, catching up on the mountain of laundry and starting to decorate for Christmas. Yesterday I saw on someones blog that there are two more Monday's before Christmas and I almost fainted. Why does this season go so lightning fast?!
Have you finished your decorating or are you just getting started? Remember, only two more Monday's before Christmas! (Gahhh!!!)
P.S. I know its a little late, but if you are looking for some cute advent printables or boxes for tiny gifts, check out my Santa Box pattern found here . They are loads of fun and easy to make :)
