These are a few of my favorite things...

I cannot believe how fast time flies! It's the Christmas season. What a joyous occasion to celebrate the Savior's birth with family and friends. I sit here tonight typing while I have our littlest cat, Meiko in my lap. It's times like these that make me happy I'm such a cat person, they really are wonderful creatures.

I haven't posted my latest receipes lately and it's such a bummer! I'll definately have to upload the pics in the next post, quite busy tonight, we are going tree hunting with my parents and then celebrating Rick's 26th birthday. Going to be a fun night...even with the chilly weather!

What I can post are some pictures from the Phi Sigma Sigma Alum Ornament Exchange. It was my first year going (have been an alumna since 2007) and I was very happy I went. Everyone was to bring an ornament of their choice (I bought mine at Pier 1, naturally) and a dish that would be entered in the best food contest. Our exchange was quite fun and entertaining, much stealing ornaments, "oooohs" and "ahhhhs".

I stole my ornament from Kara and felt so bad...but I really wanted them and so glad I took them lol. As for the best food contest, I entered a pampered chef chicken wreath that I have made in the past and it was a sure-fire winner (had to compete with Ashley since she made nutella crepes with strawberries...yum-o!).

All in all it was a fun event and I'm glad I saw some old faces...there was an announcement of a recent engagement and pregnancy (different sisters :D). So much fun!
