Husband and I had planned on driving to Utah for the Christmas holiday, but I fell ill for a few days and instead of meeting Mom Brown in Utah for the weekend before Christmas, she flew to Chicago just to see us! While taking it easy Mom and I baked cookies and decorated them so pretty that nobody wanted to eat them. We ate them anyway.
We ventured out for a day and went to Hershey, Ghiradelli and got all the free samples. We then went and did a mother-daughter to the American Girl Place. I had once gotten a gift of one of the girls (Kirsten) and apparently my mom has been collecting all her accessories for me. This was a fun surprise.
