Update in Pictures 12/23/14

            Hey folks! It's been a little quiet on the blog lately, so I thought I would do a little update post. If you've been missing giveaways, rest assured there are some more of those on the way soon too! I needed a little breather after my own giveaway event in October. :)

I thawed my blueberries out a little more than I meant so the scones turned out a little Smurfy. Oops. At least they tasted good!

            As I'm sure many of you have, we've been doing a lot of holiday baking in the past week. I made blueberry scones (just because) last Thursday and a loaf of banana bread (also just because) and gingerbread men Sunday. I'd always been too afraid to try gingerbread because I'd always heard it was a pain in the butt, but I'm glad I finally tried some because 1) They taste freaking amazing and 2) They were not hard at all! P.s. If you're American, have never had scones, and decide to try some one day, consider adding a little extra sugar. Traditional scones are not all that sweet. Just throwing that out there. :)

Myka helped us make banana bread and gingerbread men. Not sure why she needed her snow boots on with her apron. lol Tell me she doesn't look totally ornery either!

 I had already posted about our Christmas sensory bins when I took this, but I had to share. Poor Mittens. Good thing she's pretty laid back.

 We've also been playing with dinosaurs...a LOT. I can't complain, though. Her "tub o' dinos" was a birthday present from us, so I'm just glad she likes them. I'm not sure how well you can tell on the left picture, but she has them stuck on her fingers. lol On the top right you have the "dino derby", as I was calling it and the bottom right she had stacked those all by herself and got them to stay somehow. I'm biased, but I was impressed. ;)
