Merry Christmas BMM readers!

It’s the night before Christmas. Santa made his stop at our house and I can’t wait to see the look on Lil’ J’s face in the morning when she sees what he brought.

I spent the night with her and her daddy starting new traditions… Drinking hot coco, watching Christmas movies, and making Christmas cookies.

Snoop even got dressed up for the affair. If you can’t tell, both of them were quite fascinated by the oven.

Sadly, our cookies weren’t homemade… We actually didn’t even take time to frost them this year, but Lil’ J still helped me break and place them on the cookie sheet. Maybe every year we’ll get a little more elaborate and by the time she’s 12 we’ll be experimenting with our own recipes.

Time is flying with my sweet little one. There’s a photo in an ornament on our tree of her two Christmases ago. Yes, she was about 8 weeks along in my uterus in that photo. Now she’s like 5,000 times that size, and thankfully, on the outside.

I hope Christmas and the holidays, and the new year bring you all joy, happiness and many blessings. I’m grateful to have you here as I share my life with y’all (yes, I live in Texas and I say y’all).

Merry Christmas!

I love the pics! We had a great Christmas this year! We did Christmas Eve with my parents last night and woke up this morning and opened family and santa presents. I love the Emerald Green Dangle earring. And your Christmas trees you are wearing in the pics!

Merry Christmas to you and yours Jennifer.

Random reader question, what type sippy cup is Lil J holding? I like the looks of it. Thanks

Olusola, I believe we just got it at Walmart. I can’t remember the brand but it was inexpensive. While we’re on this topic, it’s also easy to clean and she likes holding it 🙂

We are staying here in town and having christmas as a family.

We had Christmas Eve dinner at my MIL’s. After dinner we all opened our gifts and enjoyed each others company while watching the kids play with their new toys.

We had a great Christmas celebrating with family on the days surrounding Christmas and enjoying time just the 4 of us on Christmas Day. I hope your Christmas was nice as well! 🙂

I think my favorite item is the angel earrings, though I was having a hard time choosing…. 😉
