On the 9th and 10th Days of Christmas (+ Our Christmas Card)

We're minutes away from Christmas Day!  I'm typing this post as my little one goes down for the night (yes, somehow she stayed up past 11 tonight).

I'm cooking again this year, so I've spent the evening preparing and baking.  My pound cakes were a little overdone, but are still pretty good.  I made the dressing with NO assistance this year (following a no-measuring-whatsoever recipe from my aunt), so I'm nervous about the outcome.  We'll see.

Here's our Christmas card this year! :-)

I said I wasn't gonna do a card this year because it's so much hassle -- ordering on time and sending them out on time (neither of which I did ON TIME).  But mostly because they're costly.  But I realized a couple of weeks ago that I still had a Groupon to use that could very easily be my Christmas card purchase.

So I did.

I got these made with Vistaprint, but I'm sorry to say the actual card was not that great.  I have used Vistaprint for stationary, t-shirts, and even tote bags.  But they will never get my photocard business again.  For those of you who have your card already, I promise you M is not half-alien (as far as I know).  The green tint to her forehead was a printing error that this mama didn't order soon enough to get fixed (though they DID issue me a refund).  Oh, well.

I still like the card.  (And I still have a batch to send out.  Yeah.)

Anyhoo, it's late, I'm tired, and I ramble when I'm tired.  So I better go.  I'm gonna go ahead and schedule tomorrow's post, which includes my favorite holiday song of all time.

In the meantime, enjoy these two.  

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
