As happy as a kid on Christmas morning!

        I may have had too much going on to blog for the weak leading up to Christmas. Really though, that’s not the case. I could have posted about the cookies my mom and I baked or our fabulous dinner last night. I even made English muffins (my best batch yet) and didn’t snap a single picture. Why?
        Taking pictures of beautiful food I was really proud of got to be too depressing. Our little video camera just doesn’t take good close-up pictures. I was sick of blurry images and dishes so distant you couldn’t tell what I had baked.
        Maybe the holiday frenzy did play a bit of a role in keeping me away from the blog. Lee and I flew to Seattle to visit my mom in her new house for Christmas. We’ve been exploring the city, helping around the house, and running in the Arboretum. My mom and I have been cooking up a storm. Seattle has some fabulous food and it’s so nice to have a Trader Joe’s right down the street!

        Now I’m back and there will be no more blurry food pictures! My parents got me a Nikon D5000 for Christmas! I am so, so, so excited! This might just be the best Christmas present ever. The camera was a little intimidating at first. All I did was fondle it until last night, when I finally managed to take some pictures. They didn’t turn out so great but the ones I took this morning are much better!
