I literally had to be rolled out of the kitchen, I had eaten THAT many cookies!!

Okay, maybe not... but I felt like I should have rolled out of there.

Christmas Eve has gone down in the books as the day I baked SO MANY DAMN cookies, I should be shot. There were gingerbread boys, oatmeal raisin, oatmeal raisin chocolate chip, sugar cookies... all handmade with love (and a LOT of help from the Kitchen Aid mixer). Not only was there tons of cookies, but there was carrot cake, dutch apple pie, mince meat pie and whipped cream.

For the past two days I've been grazing on cookies and I've just about hit my limit with sweets. That limit you get to when if you even think about eating another sweet, you'll hurl.

I'm so close.

But overall, our holidays were great. Christmas Eve was everything I wanted it to be. Christmas was full of family and food.

Now I'm over it. I've taken the tree down and am in the process of packing everything up for storage. All traces of Christmas will be wiped from the house by the end of the day.

All that buildup and it's over so quickly... Oh well, that's life.

How was your Christmas?

Your family is so lucky to have such a great baker in the house. I wish I could come visit your for cookies and milk - sounds yummy!
