On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

..too many emails to reply. Which is very flattering because it means people are reading this crazy blog of mine. Go figure. I'm honestly not trying to be a jerk. I will get to you soon?!!

Check out the crazy amount of snow we've been getting here.

We actually had a snow day because the school buses weren't running except teachers still had to go to school. Thankfully Darcy made it out of the driveway.

This is what I've been up to lately. Working hard in the kitchen.

Melting chocolate,

baking, tasting. O.k., the tasting part wasn't really that hard.

I'm a huge biscotti fan. And I find this almond biscotti recipe from Joy of Baking to be one of the best. I already ate all the ones I didn't package. Did you know that Biscotti is the plural of Biscotto? Ha! Now you do.

This the season...

snip snip snip snip snip.. snip snip.. snip.. snip.

It snowed so much today. Thought I would bring a little bit of the snow indoors too.

It's December?! When did this happen. Every year when December comes by I feel like I'm that guy in those movies where he's sitting in that office cubicle and the boss comes by and throws down a stack full of urgent to do files. The boss being December and the urgent to do files such as sending out cards, gift shopping, gift making, etc, etc, and on top of that projects for others. I don't know why I don't learn my lesson and do many of those things pre-December.

Procrastination...I don't like you very much.

At least I managed to work on this this weekend,

a nativity scene for Lucius' preschool.

and got a chance to take some photos of the boys having some outdoor winter fun on the snowmobile and sled.

O.k... back to finishing up the nativity scene...bad blog bad.
