The Difference a Year Makes.

Last Christmas Season, I made this:



Oohh, la, la.



Here I am thinking I deserve some sort of domestic prize.



This Christmas Season, I made these:



My....the difference a year makes!

What can I say? Pregnancy wears a girl out! It took all I had to whip these out!

I'm definitely less motivated in the kitchen these days. Poor husby.

But aren't they soooo cute? I deserve some "brownie" points for effort. HA! Get it? ;) If you are wondering how I made these, it's from the fab pan that I gave away last week. Of course, I didn't use the winners pan because that would be rude...I have one of my very own. And I love it with all my heart.

Let's see some of your Holiday treats!

  3. Who cares how elaborate they are!... You're busy growin' a baby! How about THAT for elaborate! :)

    I think the latter is much more fancy!

  5. Those brownies look SO good! Atleast you have the excuse of being pregnant and not being in the kitchen. I am NOT pregnant and am still not in the kitchen.

  7. The brownies look cute and yummy! We made that gingerbread tree with our boys for advent last year. They liked it so much that this Sunday for our Advent celebration, we are going to make a gingerbread house. Yours were darling, by the way!

    Happy Holidays!

  12. Your decorations are beautiful, as always! And I think making brownies or cookies is just as applause-worthy as a gingerbread city. So, way to go, momma!! AND, most importantly, you get to lick the batter out of bowl...you can't do that with a gingerbread house.

    Don't worry about not doing everything you used to, kids (even kids on the way!) tend to simplify life. =)

  23. You did deserve an award for that gingerbread house. I love it! The ribbon candy fence is an awesome touch! My dad would love it and devour it!
    Now this year’s treat looks really yummy though! I think more along the lines of something I could enjoy eating :0
