2011 Wrap Up

Halloween has come and gone, on Thanksgiving we feasted, Christmas hustle and bustle has passed, and tonight we ring in the New Year.

2011 has been a year of blessings and blessing in disguise.  We welcomed a little fur baby into our family.  We've weathered some relationship roller coasters. Grew in our friendships and embraced new opportunities.  I am so thankful for the blessing that God has given us this year, as well as the challenges that He put in our lives to give us the opportunities to grow and to be better people.

This was my first full year of being wifey with the Hubster actually home and not deployed.  I am grateful for the full year that I got to spend developing my marriage, keeping a home, and learning new things about myself and my husband.

I look forward to the changes next year will bring.  Lots of Auntie opportunities next year that I am so excited to embrace. Excited and nervous to progress through this stage in my life.  I can't wait to see the life that happens with my family and friends this next year. 

I hope you all get to spend the last moments of 2011 with people you love and get to start 2012 off to a great new beginning. Happy New Years!

Christmas Treats!

This year, I was able to have a treat making day with the Hubster's family.  It was super fun to get all the girlies together to make some Christmas treats.

First on the treat docket was Rocky Road Pieces (sorry... all the pics of those were blurry).  But it's peanuts and marshmallows covered in chocolate and formed into little mounds or balls of deliciousness.

Next on the docket, homemade Carmel Corn (recipe thanks to Mrs. DeLo!!)

And finally, Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Mmmm.  yummm  :]
