Santa's Little Helper...NOT

I got this wild & crazy idea in my mind the other day that I was going to be like Santa's little helper and bake my heart away. My mom does this every year and makes it look so easy. So in an effort to stop mooching off her greatness and put a few tips Martha Stewart has taught me along the way to practice I gathered ALL my ingredients. I couldn't have just been happy with making a few dozen of one kind of cookies to give out to my loved ones. NO I had to make Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Sugar Cookies, Ginger Snaps, Lemon Cookies, Brownies, Pumpkin bread and muffins. I started at 4:00 in the afternoon and did not turn the oven off until 4:00 am. I was saving the Oatmeal cookies to do last since they are Tony's favorites and I never even got to make them. How sad is that. :( He even stayed up with me all night. It was heart breaking when he came into the kitchen to taste an oatmeal cookie and they were no where to be found. He thinks I have lost my mind. I think he is right. Let's just say that this will not be becoming a tradition. Sorry to disappoint mom. Another case and point of your amazingness. Looks like my mooching days are here to stay.

This is the winning design the Kross Family chose for their Christmas cards.

Here is a few more cards that I ordered recently...

One of my favorite times of the year is shooting family portraits and then later getting to design their Christmas cards. If you are interested and would like more information please contact me at or {714} 454-7497.

On another note I wanted to wish my favorite father-in-law a Happy, Happy Birthday today! We love you so much.

Love, Tony, Danielle, Mac & Jonas

Principal's List

This morning I went to a special award ceremony for a special girl in my life. She is not only my niece but Kiana is my buddy. I adore every last minute I am blessed to spend with her. She truly is an amazing girl. This award is extra special because Kiana has started her last year of elementary at a new school, in a new town away from all her friends. Nothing can stand in the way of this girl. She is going to change the world. Kiana, we are so proud of you. Keep up the great work! We are always here for you. Love, Uncle Tony & Auntie Danielle
