(If it works and people like it - as evidenced by thousands of comments on what a creative person I am and how you love my blog and my new traditions - it will be a tradition. If not, then consider this a "filler" and know that my next post will be way better.) I thought on Christmas Eve I would show you a few "before" photos. And then after Christmas I thought I'd bring you some "after" photos and we'll compare the two.

|The tamales. Don't judge. They are NOT homemade.|
|The merriment. For me. Yes, I am cheap, but not easy. ;o)|
|The Boy. Trying to figure out if you can snort candy.|
|The cookies. Decidedly it was easier to decorate nicely when I paid $25.00 and was provided all the proper tools.|
