the finish line is in sight

I am SO READY to be done baking. My poor pregnant body is screaming at me.
But I AM done - Feels so nice to say that.
Today I ran a baking marathon, making spritz cookies, chocolate cookies with mint chips, and chocolate chip cookies (with toffee bits thrown in), then decorating the sugar cookies.
It became a bit excessive, but I'm so looking forward to being human again, and being more present for the boys in my life. And I may not bake again for months..... or at least a week.
Tomorrow we're boxing up the goods and beginning delivery.
Don't you wish you were our neighbor? (say yes, say yes)

I do wish I still lived by you!!! Girl you are just too good at everything. Is there anything you can't do? Good job. They look so cute and good, I could just eat one! You'll have to do that for me. I mean Oliver must love having you for his mom. What a lucky little boy. Everyday is full of fun and something new. Now take a rest or a nap you work to hard.

Check you out!!! Way to bake! I love you, but I guess I'm not that good of a neighbor to bake that much. I'll watch Oliver anytime, except when we feel too sick to do anything. Sorry, about this past week, but we're ready for next week. The girls have missed him.

I am so amazed at your patience. I think you got my share of it. In return, I would like to help you out, by taking some of those cookies off of your hands. Just tell me where to send my address. :)

Yes, yes, yes! But I would want to be your neighbor even if you didn't have yummy treats. Your sugar cookies look phenomenal. Really. Your neighbors are lucky people. I think a nap is definitely in order for you.

I admire you! I can't believe you dedicated that much of your time to so many different baking projects.
I personally hate baking so I wish I were your neighbor so I could enjoy some delicious holiday treats. (and perhaps hire you to bake mine for me, haha)
Have a happy holiday season.

Ummm, yes. But could I be the neighbor with the big house, huge master bedroom, Jacuzzi tub, chef's kitchen, & the sparkly shiny laundry room?

I miss being your neighbor. Poor Chuck doesnt get any treats anymore since we moved! We miss you running up in the middle of Puerto Rico to get a snack for us... then you came back with these gourmet cookies, brownies, etc. I also loved to post on the Train Museum... I bet Oliver was in heaven!

Was this a trick question?!

Wow! My pregnant body would have truly hated me too but, sometimes you gotta suffer through because the cuteness and yumminess is so worth it! You totally rock! I am way impressed and rather inspired.
