One of the best Christmases ever!

This date, lucky #7, was during Christmas (yes, I realize I’m 3 months late posting)!  Better late than never is my motto! :p

I was hoping for a low-key, STrESs-less holiday, and by golly, I got what I wished for.  For me, eating delicious homecooked meals, baking goodies, and exploring cities are the best pastimes in life.  How I managed to have all 3 for Christmas (no less!) is still something I’m trying to wrap my head around.  I mean, at most, 2 out of 3 happens, but never has all 3………

….until last year!

Maybe I dreamt it.  Wait, can’t be!  I have photos! :p

Jeff showed off impressed me with his culinary skills.

Jeff singlehandledly took on making these delectable muffins.

He used a muffin mix, but you’d never know it wasn’t from “scratch”

And we did some sight-seeing…. to look at the beautiful Christmas lights in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The previous night

The only time I was antsy was during our search for a specific 2010 Day Planner for me.  What can I say?  I’m extremely picky about certain things. I was faced with either doing without or worse yet, having to settle.  We found exactly what I was looking for at our 2nd stop, good ol’ WalMart. Yippee!

Overall, I’d say I got the hang of low-key holidays. :p

Stay tuned for Date #8.
