Buongiorno! Aloha! Guten Tag!

I am a curious person by nature...so it should come as no surprise that I wanna know who is out there reading my crazy rants.  So...time for all you quiet followers, blog stalkers, shadow dwellers...and heck, even all my long-time friends to come out and say hello!   Leave a comment...tell me your name, how you found my blog, and what your favorite Christmas treat is.  

And to bribe you I'll share one of my favorite hilarious photos with you:

 Help! Help! My mommy won't stop taking pictures of me!!

Seriously...makes my laugh out loud EVERY time I see it...oh man.  Tears are accompanying this laughter tonight...TEARS I tell you!

Hey Holly! It's Marsha. I think I found your blog when I found you and Nate on Facebook a couple years ago. We are so happy for you and your adorable little Miles. My favorite Christmas treats are probably these candy cane cookies that my mom makes with almond extract. It has made it so anything with almond extract in it reminds me of the holidays.

Hi Holly- I'm Mary. I can't remember exactly how I found your blog, but when I did I immediately recognized your family (and your adorable baby) from this year's National FSA Conference.
My favorite holiday treat is FUDGE.

This is Heather--Nate's cousin! :) And I seriously have too many fav. holiday treats. But I LOVE having my mom's peach syrup on french toast for Christmas morning breakfast. :)

I stalk your blog all the time and rarely say anything but I love keeping up with you. I think that I found it because you put it in a Christmas letter you sent to us. I know it was one of the first that I began reading. As for treats, I love watching my kids especially when they are two or three at Christmas see what Santa brought them. This year will be fun for you but next year will be awesome. You will see. Really though, all it takes to keep me happy at Christmas is anything that includes lots and lots of Chocolate. I guess that applies to year round too.

Pretty sure I love all treats! But right now my fav is coconut cream pie. Im sure that will change in a day or two. There are so many tasty holiday treats.

I am Beckie Bailey and I have been following your blog since you were here in Newport. We love you very much and love how happy you are! Keep in touch. We wish you were coming back here instead of going so far away but you will love it. I love so many things about the holidays but I guess my favorite things is homemade candy.

I'm Tiffany. I found your blog from the link on my SIL's, Kala's, blog.

So happy for you to have a little man of your own!

My favorite is my mom's hot orange punch.

ChristinaS said...

well Im Christina and I've been following your blog forever it seems. I think I found your link on FB one time and been following it ever since. I'm so excited for you guys. Very excited you get to go to Italy and explore that side of the world. How cool. And considering after we all left RI this has been an awesome way to stay in touch..
My favorite holiday treat has to be hands down (Mikes cousin's) white chocolate and milk chocolate bark, and white chocolate and milk cholcolate hockey pucks. She ONLY makes them for christmas. She almost didn't make it this year till I begged her to. It became my present for this year:o) Mike loves ribbon candy (which he can't have much of anymore)
