honestly. i have the christmas decorations up, the stores are playing christmas music, and i have started to make my cookies for my family's annual cookie exchange. this year my husband made the request of his favorite cookies to share with my loved ones: butterscotch oatmeal. i made 4 batches, way more than i needed to, but let's say there is about two huge ziplock bags on their way overseas this week, as a result. as much as i am not the biggest fan of christmas, this year i have a different outlook. making sure my little man enjoys each and every holiday, even though i'm sure he won't remember a thing. i'll have pictures to show him later on in life. bring it on christmas, we are ready for you! and those cookies? ugh. bring on the extra gym time.
