I'm doing well this year, I think. I've realized that trying to follow the spirit of the thing instead of the letter is a huge part of making the holidays great for the kids. I've already botched so many things for this Christmas -- I can't even list them because it makes me sad -- but I'm moving on. We've got Cinnamon Bear playing and I'm getting out the kitchenaid as soon as I get off the computer. We're going to make spritz cookies! I'm very excited. After 10 years of thinking I had a spritz cookie press I realized I don't and just ordered one.
(Those are the wonky peppermint cake pops I made for Oscar's party up above.)
