Anyway, I hope everyone was as blessed as we were this holiday season! We got to spend time with family, each other, and friends! This family was extremely blessed with a TON of wonderful gifts. We can not be more thankful. Unfortunately, it wasn't one of our strong years for the gifts giving. We tried to keep it nice and simple. We are living on the tightest budget we have ever lived on, so we tried to make most of our gifts we gave f....but unfortunately I ran out of time and wasn't able to make everything I planned on making. Here is what most of it looked like. (I am currently trying new things with my camera and attempted to shoot most of these pictures in manual mode. I am still learning photography and hope to get better in time):
Our very first Tofurkey
Our Christmas dinner with Kliff...you can't see but he is there!
Vegan Christmas cookies. Thank you Sandra from Vegan Mother Hubbard for this delicious cookie recipe!
Holiday punch courtesy of Andrew. He named it Winter Wonderland.
It wouldn't be Christmas if something like this didnt happen. Thank you blocked drain pipe and over flowing tub! We couldn't of done it without you!
What a mess! Thank you Brad, Kliff, and Andrew for making this mess go away.
I hate it when it rains inside the house.

Newspaper is the cheapest wrapping paper ever. Especially the free newspaper.

A great way to end a long stretch of eating, gifting, and having fun....a good book with Auntie Stacie.
