Tis the Season...

...For festive holiday pictures! Now, I'm not here to complain about how I've eaten one too many cake balls, or that the desserts that keep popping up are just undeniably delicious. And I'm also not here to complain about the fact that, with six days left until Christmas, Massachusetts has yet to see any snow fall!

But I am most importantly NOT complaining about meeting the newest addition to my family - my baby cousin Mia! She is so adorable and I can't believe it's taken three months for me to meet the little darling. She is so well-tempered and makes the cutest little noises when she's not sucking on two of her fingers. I wish I got a picture of that! But below you will see one of the many gifts we got for her very first Christmas. Totally what I'd dress my baby with if I had one!

Cake balls - my mum and my first attempt at making the scruptious little things. She found the recipe on The Blackberry Vine. How cute is my mum for looking at blogs?! I should have pictured these cut in half as well, because the red velvet inside had me drooling.

 I love that this picture came out the way it did. I didn't mean for it to be bokeh-esque, but I love it! This is our Christmas tree, if you couldn't tell.


Anyway, I'm sure I'll be popping up on Blogger quite a bit over the next few days because I'm not working from now until Wednesday afternoon! So that will be quite the nice little break before the holiday craziness.
