It's been a little while since we've chatted: the holidays are always so busy, and I've been struggling to get back into a good routine. Plus, I got a pretty nasty cold/flu which knocked me out for a couple of days.
Anyway, here's some photos of what we did over the holidays!
I decided it was high time I made some frosted gingerbread cookies. Helen LOVED helping out.
I tried my best to teach her to get the cutter right out to the edge without going over. :)
You guys, I'm rubbish at frosting cookies. These are the best of the bunch.
However, these tasted amazing.
Christmas Eve at Reuben's family's house! Their tradition is to have everyone bring a different kind of soup. This year I made ramen from scratch.
Also, I curled Helen's hair with a flat iron.
James enjoyed the feast as well (he ate special baby-friendly food that I made for him).
Keeping kids entertained (AKA not destroying everything in sight) at someone else's house is always...interesting. I love it that Reuben's family has toys readily available!
Happy but a bit incredulous that he was allowed to rip paper!
The chaos of opening presents.
Half the fun of getting presents is showing them off to your cousins. :P
Rommegrot (technically Floyelsgrot) - AKA the most delicious Christmas treat ever! Get the recipe HERE.
Opening presents at my family's house.
Helen wore her new pink sparkly dress (a present from Reuben and I).
New Years was kind of a depressing day. I was thinking about sad stuff. And I didn't intend to stay up until midnight, but it just happened anyway. Ha!
How did y'all celebrate Christmas/the new year?
