sugar overload

i haven’t felt the slightest ounce of hunger in the past three days…which means i’m definitely home for christmas break.
my mom has a tendency to over-serve food. she literally spends almost the entire day in the kitchen and keeps making wonderful, delicious smelling things that i just cannot resist.
it’s seriously a problem. i’m afraid my skinny jeans will be more like jeggings by time i leave next week.
oh well.
two of my cousins slept over two nights ago, which included a ping-pong ball fight, a lot of food, and watching the x factor finale together, with jaelyn talking every three seconds. she’s a chatty one when she has had a lot of sugar.
yesterday we baked cookies for family that will be here today and tomorrow.
my mom’s caramels…which are to die for. 
chocolate chip snowball cookies
they thought it would be a great idea to lick the powdered
sugar off the counter. oh, to be young again. 

spritz cookies

hard at work
i can’t wait to dig into all of these sweets tonight.
merry christmas eve, lovely readers! 
i hope you all have a fabulous day!
