Five on Friday

1. Christmas is the best time of the year.

I have the post Christmas blues. I love the holidays and Christmas is my favorite. I'm sad that it's over. I feel like with Thanksgiving and Christmas being so close this year that all of us got robbed an entire week of holiday joy. I'm so glad that I was able to travel to West Virginia and spend it with family. Santa visited me and brought me tons of great stuff but I would have been happy even if I didn't get a single thing. Being home was enough for me.

2. The Christmas Ham. My mom out did herself this year. She made an amazing ham.
We prepared the ham on Christmas Eve. We got it covered in the pineapples and smeared the brown sugar mixture all over it. Christmas morning this bad boy went into the oven and came out six hours later. It was so good! My mom also made tons of sides which were yummy as well. It isn't Christmas without some ham!
 
3. Christmas Cookies and Candy. My mom and I made some homemade cookies and chocolate covered peanut butter balls. When I say my Mom and I, I should clarify. My mom basically did everything and I helped paint the cookies and cover the balls in chocolate. Just to be clear. I am not Martha Stewart when it comes to all things.
 Cookies for Santa! Clearly he loves Christmas trees and stars.
Prepping the peanut butter balls. Then the finished product...
I can't know how to make these. If I did, I would make them everyday and eat every single one. That's how good they are. Seriously.
 
4. Christmas flowers.
Someone sent me flowers on Christmas Eve. I thought it was super sweet and nice. Look at that cute boot! I mean flowers and a Christmas boot, how can that not be awesome!?!
 
5. It's back to the real world now with work. Ugh....

I'm with you on being sad after the holidays are over. I seriously cried having to come back to our house on Christmas Day. I love spending time with family and I did NOT want Christmas to be over!

Looks fantastic. We just pigged out on food and didn't bother putting any decorations up. I also didn't have the internet for a week but at least it meant a holiday for me.

Oh yum those peanut butter balls? Definitely dangerous. I'm glad you didn't post a recipe.
