Welcome, Evan John Swearengen!

Our very good friends Aron and Allison welcome their 2nd son on Monday morning. To say we've been through thick and thin with them is an understatement. We've have been through many high's and low's in life with them and couldn't think of two parents more deserving of another baby than Aron & Allison.

Evan's big brother Wesley is like another nephew to Steve and I, we love him to death. He is going to be the best big brother and helper to Mom & Dad. We love the Swearengens and are so happy for them!

Tea with Mrs. Claus

One of our cute little boutique's here did "tea with Mrs. Claus" It was so fun! Our friends Alli and Ashlyn join us. The girls had so much fun decorating cookies with Mrs Claus and sipping yummy hot chocolate. They got to sit with Mrs Claus and talk about what they asked Santa for and also decorate a frame for the picture of them to go in. It was a really cute and fun event!!

holiday baking!!

This year I was determined to get a bunch of holiday baking done for my friends and family!! I made peanut butter fudge, homemade twix bars, butterschotch brownies, oatmeal peanut butter bars, and holly berry wreath's! Then I called my girlfriend Cym and said we should do some baking together because that would make it more fun! She agreed and we decided to make mini kahlua cakes, fudge, and carmalitas!! We will just say I got back into baking!!!! Love being in the kitchen baking and with a great friend made it better!!
