Santa's Lil Helper

This weekend was so great! I loved being home with little man and "sleeping in" (which means not having to wake up at 6:30... woooot!) and just relaxing around the house. We took Carter to the Luminaries in Dillsboro where Santa was visiting Saturday night. He was pretty pooped and slept through most of the excitement, but I still got some great pictures. A friend of ours gave him 2 sets of Christmas outfits and I could not be happier with them, especially paired up with the shoes my mom got him! Check this one out:

Aren't I cute!!!

This is muh' happy faaace!

Santa Shoes from Grandmuddy!

All snuggled up and ready for Santa!

I met Santa, but I slept right through it!

I also made yummy goodies for a present last night and I can't wait to share it with you! I have to give it to that person before I post it though, so you'll see it tomorrow. I'm so proud of myself! I got creative and made a recipe of my own and it turned out sucessful! Yay for me!
Until then, enjoy this recipe of my favorite appetizer that our family does. I made these for breakfast and served it along with grits.... yummy!! It's so fast and simple:

1 package Lil Smokies
1 pound bacon

Preheat oven for 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray. Cut bacon into fourths. Wrap indivdual smokies in bacon fourths. Insert toothpick into Lil Smokie. After wrapping all Smokies, place them on the baking sheet and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake for 15- 20 minutes.
