Not sure where this originated from, but it has been my husband’s go-to recipe for several years now and I’m going to share it with y’all, you lucky people *wink wink*

More Holiday Shindiggery!
So far, I have only used the AC outlet in the car for plugging the breast pump in during long trips. BUT…this week, last night to be specific, I discovered EXACTLY why that odd little outlet was added to the particular minivan we bought…
~insert chorus of angels~
Now, really. Who says minivans aren’t AWESOME!? Merry Christmas, y’all!
Let’s get lit!
I am just in love with my sister for many reasons, but two currently outstanding ones are 1) she is an amazing photographer and 2) she’ll drive home from Georgia for a weekend to take pictures of my little boys for me! That is love!

Merry Christmas, y’all!
Things my kids say…
December 5, 2011
Me: Evan, would you like cereal or a waffle?
Me: Would you like milk or coffee?
Evan pauses to look at me and see if I’m serious (laughing): Milk, mama! I want milk. I don’t like coffee! You like coffee, mama. Do you want coffee?
Me: Yes, I would love some coffee!
Evan (still giggling): I don’t want coffee. When I have coffee, I’ll be old!
I love that kid!
Tacky Sweater Shindig
Last weekend we co-hosted with my brother and his wife, our something or other annual Cider & Sweets Christmas party. This year, having done this party for such a long time now, we decided to theme it and host our first “Tacky Sweater” shindig. My sis-in-law/bestie and I had such fun hunting for ugly sweaters online all summer, and we were tickled to see how many folks unpacked their authentic old-school gear for everyone’s amusement. We also hired a few babysitters this year to watch our kiddos for us so we could enjoy the festivities to the fullest – worth every penny!
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the afternoon ~ enjoy!
Holiday Shin-diggery 2011
There will probably be more than one post about Christmas events. but I gotta start somewhere! We attended an annual gallery event this past Friday evening featuring one of our favorites, Stephen White. He’s a local Carolina artist and every nook & cranny of our home is filled with his beautiful creations. I’ve added a picture of the little one that came home with us this year. Merry Christmas, y’all! Let the festivities begin!
We clean up nicely, huh?
