Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
Maisy somehow found herself in a photo shoot.
I made that banner; it says “MERRY CHRISTMAS.”
Maisy loves to find herself a little nest.
A Homemade Christmas
Since I’m a poor college student, I decided to make most of my presents this year.
This is a wreath I made for my parents (tutorial here).
I knit this for my little cousin (I actually also knit a smaller version for an even littler cousin).
I knit this one for Morgan.
These ornaments were for my Aunt Melissa (above) and Emily (below).
And then I made these treats for different people. These are Bakerella’s red velvet cake bites.
And these are chocolate cookies (recipe here). Some of them have buttercream frosting in the middle with crushed peppermint around the edge.
I don’t have many pictures of Christmas Day, because my camera decided to stop working until 11:00 at night. These are ones my mom took.
My cute grandparents.
Here’s Emily opening her foodie basket. I picked out most of it, so I hope she likes it!
Our table was full of amazing food. Mom bought a standing rib roast to make for the first time ever and it turned out really delicious and flavorful!
Everyone ready for dinner (and Mom behind the camera).
It was a really nice day full of family, food, and giving. I got lots of nice new clothes and a Garmin Forerunner, which is exciting! Does anyone know how accurate the “calories” feature is on the Garmin?
Did anyone get anything super exciting this year?
