I love the holiday season and we are in full swing here in the IGK family!
There has been baking....
The bundt style cake is a banana bread from Pioneer Woman...it was pretty good. The one from Smitten Kitchen was definitely a winner. Not necessarily as good as my favorite one, but since that recipe has been lost for months (ack!! it used shortening and was really straight forward but I can't find the recipe card for the life of me and can't remember it), I thought I'd try a few new ones.
There have been rainy days and tea....
Don't worry, I wasn't driving when this picture was taken :)
There was the Polar Express (bad auntie couldn't make it, but Lil' Guy's mommy sent me pictures!!)
Goodness I love that kid!
Then my sister suggested we attend the Dickens Fair last weekend. What a lovely event! I don't know why we haven't been before.
Lil' Snowboarder loved going to "London!"
And then there is the knitting....
ummm....insert picture here? Busy weekend, not enough knitting. Must fix that soon! I did at least go to knit nite tonight :)
