Happy Wednesday before Christmas!

YES! I am SO excited for the holidays to officially be here. I spent the morning baking with my mom and sis-in-law, and we created such wonderful goodies! One of the things I enjoy most in life is baking, and I also love putting goodies together in a pretty presentation. My sister-in-law, Brooke, is opening up a bakery here in Prescott and I really can't wait to do my part there and have fun making things pretty.

I'm currently listening to music and waiting for Hank to get home from work, and then we are having a little night-before-Christmas Eve dinner get-together at Taj Mahal, a local Indian restaurant downtown. They have the most delicious food and I can't wait.

I also wanted to let you guys know that I added a search feature up there, at the upper right corner of my layout. My friend Lauren suggested this, and I think it will be a helpful tool for finding past entries. Try it, and let me know what you think!

And now, pictures...
