Lone photos

This Christmas, I took only two photos.  Two.  The rest of the time I just enjoyed being with the kiddos without an appendage.  So here are the photos.

And inexplicably, although I have no pictures of dinner--I have one of the cake.  Why? Not sure.  But here it is:

It's a fudgy brownie peppermint torte, but since I didn't have four 9-inch pans to make it more torte-like, so the layers are thicker and there are only three of them.  Anyway, I digress.  Brownie layers, cream cheese and peppermint filling.  Festive.

And that's that!  Two photos but probably the most relaxing Christmas I've had in years.  

I hope your Christmas was merry and that you have a wonderful 2012.  I'm excited that I can finally write it on my checks.  I've been doing it and having to cross it out for months.  It slides so smoothly off the pen--2012--that it just has to be a great year!

Fudge brownie peppermint torte!?!? Okay, (please) hand over the recipe ASAP! It sounds scrumptious!! Love the photos as always. You can tell the kiddies are close or did you give them the "Mom Eye" to behave? You ask why the cake and not the dinner? Here's the answer: "Life is short, eat dessert first" and I couldn't agree more!!!!
