sweetest time of year

Literally. We did our part last night and whipped up a bounty of buttery, sugary treats - coconut/pecan, red sugar sprinkled, dark chocolate and choc. covered espresso bean thumbprints, and jimmy sprinkled 'pretzels'. It was fun to bake with Jared :o) We stayed up a bit late and are totally wiped today because it wasn't a great sleep night for the Bird (she never gives us a memo ahead of time so we can expect it).

But we must keep on keeping on :o) There's felting to do (in 40 degree weather, oh yay!), packages to wrap and ship, some major clean up around here, then packing and getting ready for our trip to Texas for Christmas (Jared's parents). Please send good thoughts our way...never flown with a baby before and I'm already nervous! It's insane how much stuff we have to bring!

Have a sugary sprinkled day with a chocolate chip on top :o)
xo, devon

Traveling with a nursing baby can be a dream. I was on 14 flights with my oldest his first year. He even sailed through a 12 hour flight from St. Louis to NYC with no complaints. Imagine if you had to carry enough formula for that! Best wishes!

thanks laura! i appreciate it! :o)

totally agree with you about the formula, solid foods, etc. - our only challenge is Mbird doesn't like to sit much, or nurse while sitting. but it's only 3.5 hours so i'm sure we'll all survive!

goodness gracious, where did you go with 14 flights in one year??

A lot of that was connecting flights. I visited St. Louis 2x, then tagged along on several business flights to NYC, Florida. Can't remember the rest. I wanted to get as much traveling in before we had to pay for my son's ticket.
