Phew! It wasn’t easy squeezing all this holiday fun into December, so we’ll just have to start celebrating earlier next year. One thing I will DEFINITELY be doing less of is all the crazy holiday baking. I don’t know what came over me.

Learning to poach eggs together was fun, but Brian mastered it. This is his lovely work here. I however, am an egg-poaching failure!

The Central Park ice skating rink. It was just as freezing as last year, but we went and it was amazing!


Checked out the Christmas decor and the tree in Quincy Market in Boston


Confession: I love wrapping Christmas presents. I made my own labels this year too!

PENGUINS!!!!!!!!!!!! The packaging is a gift in itself. Thank you, Brian! ❤
