The Lexingtonienne



According to Robert Burns, “The best laid plans of mice and men gang aft agley.” As you might have noticed in the Thanksgiving posts, I am a chronic planner. And I had planned to blog about beef vegetable soup. And an awesome way to freeze lasagna. And then I was going to make Christmas cookies and post more Christmas playlists.

But instead… I had a baby. 🙂

Mama's Little Christmas Present

Eleanora Babe Duffy was born on December 12, 2010 at 11:16 pm. She weighed 6 pounds, 3 ounces and was 19 inches long. Best. Christmas present. Ever.

So here’s the new plan, bloggies. I’m going to wish you happiest holidays now, and I’m going to go enjoy my baby and my husband and our first Christmas together. I’ll be back after the New Year with more recipes and, of course, lots of photos of Eleanora.

Peace and love,
