Isn’t that Christmas tree ornament ^^^ super cute? It’s made out of wine corks! My crafty friend, Cher, had Haley put it together. I love it.

Time: 7:56 am

Weather outside: 40.2 degrees, cloudy with the likelihood of rain.

On my desk:  4 pairs of scissors, holiday cards, fruit dehydrator manual, and 2 cooking magazines.

On the floor: Christmas present carnage! 

Christmas surprise: The kids slept until 7:45! We had to wake up Trevor because I couldn’t wait any longer!

In my ears: crackling of wrapping paper.

In my tummy: Eggnog french toast…and a sugar cookie that Santa didn’t eat.

In the oven: White Chocolate Creme Brulee.

In my future: A nap. Oh wait… no, that’s what I want in my future…Dinner at sister Jen’s house!

On tap for holiday dinner: Prime rib, Glazed Carrots, Roasted Green Beans with Parmesan, Cauliflower Gratin, and Horseradish Mashed Potatoes…a la Jen. YUM-O.

Latest obsession: White cheddar Cheez-Its…Must. Step. Away. From. The. Box.

On my mind: My family, my friends. How lucky we are.

Happy Christmas everyone! Here’s wishing you a delicious and fun holiday!

For all your readers, the Creme Brulee was indescribably delicious. One taste was a delight to the senses.
Once again, I loved your list.

Merry Christmas, Amy!! So glad the kids (and you and Paul, of course!) had a great day. And the wine cork ornament is beautiful. :)

Ahh, that was a nice way to segue back into the InBox here at Corporate America.
I love that Haley is assembling art with wine corks already!

Super cute ornament. I have a ton of wine corks and I’m always looking for ideas on how to use them.

And the Four Cheese Cheez-Its are super yummy, too. I made a snack mix with them and I pick them out, one by one. So wrong…

Merry Christmas, and thank you for your great blog!!
