A Few Things from Santa


Brad and I had a lovely Christmas, and still stayed at less than half of our usual holiday budget for each other. Here are some of my wonderful gifts:

Art supplies!


My favorite reading material: New COOKBOOKS! The first two are from Brad, and the next two are from Casey and Ida!



Baking supplies! A four tier rack for cookies (where was THIS when I had gingerbread men all over the house?), pop-up individual tart pan, pre-cut parchment, and a cookie painting kit!



We got some wonderful new ornaments! The Roman Santa and Ballooning Over Europe will be great on the Italy tree.



More ornaments:


I also received many other wonderful gifts! A springy red jacket, pantry organizers and "Mama Mia" from Brad, the annual exchange gift cards trip to Chicos with Joy for a new jeans jacket, perfume from Connie, a jigsaw puzzle or two to keep me from eating and spending in 2009, a beautiful top and girasole purse from Ida, a gorgeous beaded wrap and pin from my cousin Palma, a book on Italy from my cousin Gary, and many more treats, goodies, and fun gifts from friends! I must have been very good in 2008!

Lovely ornaments, Palma, and what great gifts!

I hope you and Brad had a wonderful Christmas. All the best to you both in 2009!

Cool presents! The four tier rack for cookies is very interesting. Does it fold up small? Happy New Year to you and Brad!!

Someone must have been a very good girl last year - Happy New Year!
