Brady and I made a batch of oreo cookies truffles (his favorite) and then Brady asked if he could make the next batch all by himself from start to finish. He crushed the cookies, mixed in the cream cheese, rolled all the balls, melted the chocolate and dipped a good amount of balls before letting me finish the rest. I could tell he was proud of himself. Baking in the kitchen with Brady is one of my favorite things to do during the holidays. Some years he's more attentive than others...and this just happened to be one of those years. Very enjoyable.
Brady also made pot holders to give to my mom and sisters.
The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.
I still haven't received the Christmas cards I ordered. :(
They were shipped on Dec. 13...but no one seems to know where they are.
I called Snapfish today and they refunded my money. Even if they come next week,
I'm still going to send them out late. People will just think I'm not "on the ball"...but
that's okay. I'm actually not that upset about it...I think I am mellowing out in my older age!
