Martha Stewart

The holiday season has turned me into good ol’ Martha Stewart. I have been baking up a storm here lately, and I love it! There is something about the smell of cookies in the oven and the breezy, cold air that brings a smile to my face. The baking project yesterday?

Gingerbread men! I prepared the dough the day before so that my cousin and step brother could cut them out and decorate them. It was interesting, to say the least. They are so anxious to learn as much as possible and work independently.

The boys were such great helpers!

The tip of the icing was too large to make into real gingerbread men so they used their mad skills to ice them like a sugar cookie. Creative thinkers in the making.

My mom’s perfectly decorated Christmas tree with perfectly wrapped Christmas presents to match the decor of the house.

I put my poorly wrapped and non-matching presents in the back, lol.. I guess I will get the hang of it sooner or later.

The past few weeks, on my blog, I have been focusing more on baking rather than healthy living but ’tis the season! I am still practicing yoga, eating well and keeping the cookie nibbles to a minimum.

How do you enjoy the Holiday season? Obviously, I bake!!

  1. I LOVE COOKIE BAKING!!!!! Unfortunately, I don’t have an oven in my Russian apartment, so it will have to wait another week or two until I go home for the holidays… But I can’t wait.

    Your mom’s matching presents make me laugh–I love lots of colors, sizes, shapes… And since I am the official present-wrapper at my house, I make sure there is a huge variety of wrapping paper every year πŸ™‚

  2. My all-time favorite Christmas cookie!! Good choice πŸ™‚
