I am back!!!

I am back!!!!
Are you excited?!
I am!!!
I am so sorry it has been so long, but we have been very busy in my family.
We drove 20 hours to Ohio and Michigan to celebrate the holidays with family. We did have a wonderful and a very eventful Christmas. It was magical! I love being with my family during the holidays!My husband drove back to FL yesterday. The kiddos and I are staying with my Mother-in-Law and Father-in-Law in Michigan while my husband is moving us to Gainesville. We will be here until Feb. I already miss my husband and it will be hard, but it has been too chaotic with the hotel situation. I am going to cook from my mother in law's HUGE kitchen every other day. I will be posting all about it!!!

Here is what I made all my family:

I made three types:
Butterscotch Coconut Cookies
White Chocolate Cranberry
Hot Cocoa

On Christmas Eve my mother made:

Crab Legs
Prime Rib
Shrimp Cocktail
Rosemary Roasted Potatoes
Cheese Ball
Cheese and Meat Tray

It was so so fantastic. I would have pictures to post, but my camera did not work!!!!

Take my word for it! It was so so so good!!!
I take after my mom! I am very proud to say!! She also made a huge Christmas breakfast:

Potato and Ham Casserole
Egg Casserole
Fresh Fruit Salad
Smoked Pork Canadian Bacon

THEN she made a huge dinner:

Homemade Meatballs
Capressa Sausage
Stuffed Hot Peppers

She so rocks! I helped, but she made most of the food by herself! She is my hero! The food was amazing. The company was amazing! I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know I did!!
