We obviously did the mandatory cookie baking. This year I had my very own helper! Even though it slows down the process, I *love* having my little girl help me in the kitchen!!

We also hosted two gatherings on Christmas, for which I was responsible for cooking. First, we had brunch with my parents and sister on Christmas morning. I made some chocolate chip muffins, and these two recipes I found on Pinterest.

|Cinnamon French Toast Bake|
OMG were they amazing! And so simple! Seriously, run out and buy the ingredients right now to make them. You will thank me later.
Christmas evening we had all of Skip's family over for a big dinner. My dad had given me a ham the night before, so I was just responsible for the appetizer, sides, and dessert. Again, all of my inspiration came from Pinterest!
