Sure, the presents have been sweet. Time with family… sweet.
Games. Toys. Stories… sweet, sweet, sweet. But I’ve always been one to push it one step further… so it’s time for dessert!!! And the SWEETest part of the day!!! Homemade chocolate cheesecake to polish off the holiday meal. Please sir, I want some MORE!!!

Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope you’re spending some quality time with friends & family this weekend. Sharing gifts, stories and laughs. Singing carols, playing games and eating sweets. Taking some time to relax and enjoy the season.

Christmas Eve fun playing with Christmas light abstractions.
Kinda makes you feel like you’re in the United Terminal at O’Hare, right?!

Just finishing up one last “project” before kicking off the Christmas Eve festivities!
Needed some red & green to perk up tomorrow’s dessert… and then once you start,
it’s SO hard to stop. Especially when there’s melted chocolate to be playing with!!!
