Christmas the sequel

I'm thankful for Christmas: Part Deux today:) There is just no greater joy than spending time with family. My sister's famous cupcakes (Baily's and cream this time -- unbelievable) and her new concoctions of butter beer (hooray for Harry Potter) were awesome, and there is no veggie lasagna in the world that can touch my mom's. I love hours spent playing ping pong and bean bag toss and battling tops. Granted, 7 dogs in one house was a bit insane -- but a great time was had by all. And well, it just feels really nice to be home. Plus it made me happy to see 1987 Christmas bear in his same old seat:)


  1. Sounds like chaotic fun. I would know nothing about that ;) Baily's and Cream Cupcakes?! Butter beer?! Ok, the cupcakes would make me sick, but for EK's cupcakes it'd be worth it. I have no idea what butter beer actually is. I'm going to go look it up right now even though I'm supposed to be asleep right now.

  2. "Granted, 7 dogs in one house was a bit insane..."

    Remember what Tom Cruise's character said to Philip Seymour Hoffman's character upon first entering his estranged father's house in the movie "Magnolia"...?

  4. Oh, I definitely have a relationship with food. Most definitely.
