Karla Crocker

That's me.  Karla "Crocker".  Sorry Betty, you ain't got nothin' on me.  The picture below was basically my whole day on Saturday.  Or at least, most of it.  Baking helped me get past the fact that we were actually supposed to be in New York City on Saturday, but with a million changes of plans, we decided it would be best to stay home.

So, while I thought today would be a photo dump of Christmas in New York, I guess I'm happier knowing that ALL my wrapping is finally done.  Baking is 3/4 of the way done.  And Christmas #1 was a success!

Peanut Butter Blossoms galore!!!

Crushed oreos for my Oreo Truffles!  SO yummy.

Today, I would like to ask for prayers for a member of our family who is in the hospital.  He was admitted last night, but we need him to be well and to come home for Christmas.  Family is what truly matters at this time.  So, today, I am praying for him to get well and to come home and be with his loved ones.

Love, I believe, is one of the very best gifts of Christmas.

Thank you to everyone who linked up for the Holiday Edition of the Newlywed Game!  I am just finishing up reading/watching all your posts!!!  I love that some of you were brave enough to vlog!  

See you tomorrow!
