It doesn't really feel like Christmas time until our place is thoroughly decorated and large amounts of hot chocolate are being consumed. Especially when it includes peppermint swirl whip cream that we made, mmm! Our house smells pine tree fresh and we are well into baby's first Christmas time which is the most fun. Turns out having a Christmas tree is *quite* the crawling incentive for this little guy. So if you need me I'll most likely be guarding the tree from tiny baby hands.
