Happy Holidays!

This has been a very special year for me. This year I cherished so many moments of my daughter's first year and all her subsequent firsts - her first smile, her first crawl, her first solid meal, her first word ("no" - can you believe it!) to her first wobbly step! When we welcomed 2012 last year, she was this tiny little newborn tightly swaddled in a blanket and look how grown up she is now, no more like a baby but almost like a little girl! The Mom in me is so proud and happy yet also silently saddened by how fast the time seems to be running. Just for a while I want to freeze the time and enjoy her baby days just for a little bit longer... I am so not ready to let go of her newborn smell or her gummy grins! hey, may be that should be my wish to Santa.. :)

2012 is always going to have a special place in my heart... but I know the next year will be equally happy and adventurous in it's very own ways and while I am not quite ready for her toddler days (read toddler tantrums!), I am happy for this holiday break in between - planning to just sit back, relax and slip in the happiness of the holidays spreading all around.

So many of you have kept in touch through emails, facebook and comments while I have been on an on-and-off blogging break - one thing I hope to do much better next year: blog more, write more!

I made this Edible Christmas Tree a few years back - ever since then it has had a permanent place in all the holiday parties we have been invited too! I am so happy so many of you liked the tree, made it, improvised on it and sent all those little encouraging words and feedback through countless comments, emails and links! Thank you also to all of you who have linked and credited the fruit tree on your pages and spaces and helped spread it's reach much farther - when I see each and every one of the new links, it never fails to make my day :) I know I will never be able to list out all of you but many thanks to Frugal Novice, Carlene Thomas, Cute for Kids, examiner, Welch's, Hawaii Island Garden School Network, El Pais newspaper, Canadian Family, Disney Baby, Amy's Kitchen and so many of you from Pinterest, Facebook and particularly all the bloggers for making my simple edible fruit tree a part of your special Christmas celebrations - a very happy holidays and a wonderful new year to all of you!
