First off, thank you ALL for the super nice comments on the contest post. It seems the secret to getting comments is awesome free stuff. Still, it was nice to hear from some readers who don't usually comment. I was online right at midnight 12/23 and used random.org to choose among the 38 comments received. The winner was #4, Becky from Hilton Krew. I emailed her and promptly logged off in favor of making more Christmas gifts and some unbelievable cinnamon rolls. So yay for Becky and as a consolation prize for the rest of you awesome folks may I recommend a recipe? I know pretty much everyone reads The Pioneer Woman but I bought her cookbook for a Christmas gift and first photocopied the cinnamon roll recipe. It's also online here. They are SO GOOD. Make yourself some! A pan of those and you'll totally forget you didn't win the book.
Christmas was great. Biscuit originally asked for an iPad, and iPhone and some other electronic she wasn't going to get but a few weeks before Christmas had a change of heart and asked for a Razor scooter (along with Skittles, Judy Moody books and a diamond ring ;) She got all those items but the diamond wasn't real ;).
This is the funniest photo of Christmas. We were all up for HOURS waiting for Biscuit. Finally, Mr. H woke her up at 8 am and she dragged herself to the livingroom. Talk about anticlimactic. But it all went up from there.
Hope yours was merry and bright. More later when I can be more coherent but Monique asked who won the contest and I realized I hadn't posted the winner!
