There's no cliche like a kid cliche, y'all. From the moment your belly starts growing it begins. People tell you, "It will go by so fast!" or "Enjoy every moment! Don't wish any of it away!". Then there's my personal favorite: "The days are long but the years are short!". You smile and nod politely or give a little laugh and exclaim, "Totally!" It sounds like a broken record because we have all heard it so many times, but that's because it is SO TRUE! Like, how is my baby a walking talking toddler this year? (Cue tears!) My mom used to always tell me during this time of year how much fun Christmas is with little kids-- likely as a ploy to get more grandkids-- but she was right. (As mothers usually are.) Parker thinks every Christmas tree is cause to stop, point and exclaim, "Wow!" and reminds us on an hourly basis that Rudolph's nose is red. (Baby genius... kidding. We've been training that into her since Thanksgiving.) Either way, for the next 17 days we will be soaking up and celebrating this holiday season in every way possible. Cookie baking, present wrapping, and Christmas light adventures, oh my! Whether you're hosting friends or just unwinding after a longer than long day, this Sugared Cranberry Margarita is the stuff holiday dreams are made of! Happy Holidays, friends!
