Holiday Giddiness

Yesterday when I got home I was so giddy for the holidays. The tree was up, Christmas lights, cookies in the oven, decorations all over the house, Christmas music on. It was so great. I even made my mom get out the box of ornaments so I could be a few on that they hadn't put up yet. I was so happy. We made some cookies yesterday and I got to put the presents that I had already bought under the tree. The holidays are a great time, I am sure no one will argue with me on that one.
So I picked out this 'Middle Child is Mom's Favorite' ornament a couple of years ago and since I am the middle child I always give my little brother a hard time when Christmas comes every year and it is hanging on the tree. He might be 11 and I am 20 but hey it is still fun to give your siblings a hard time. Oh the joy of the holidays. 
I am really excited to be sharing with all of you some of my favorite holiday recipes. My mom and I make a bunch of cookies and candy every year. I am sure none of the recipes will be ground breaking but I am still excited to share them. Then one day when I have my own kids I can look but on my blog this time of year and make all my favorite recipes without ever having to write anything down on a recipe card. However, I do like a recipe box filled up with recipe cards there is something so cool about a recipe box stuffed to the brim with recipes you have collected over the years. Hopefully someday I will have one, I guess I can start on that now.
Have a wonderful day.
love, Carlee
