Some Christmas and a Liebster blog award

Like I said, because we are going out of town next week and I am not putting up a tree just say it, I am a grinch (before his heart grew) and a scrooge and what ever else you want to call me. It has not felt the same this Christmas season and I can't wait to get to my Mom's house in Utah and smell her fresh pine tree!! Oh and chase Luke around so he wont destroy it!
I have been craving some egg nog and haven't made any yet.. after seeing some of these yummies I think that is on the agenda for this weekend!
