Your angel is very sweet. She would make a lovely ornament! I also love all your nautical pics, they are very fun - the sand/snow men are especially cute. :)

And "wow" on the cookies! I will cook you a 12 course dinner, but I just don't bake. I don't know why, but the thought of making cookies (especially that many!) just about melts my brain. Fantastic though- yum!

Merry Christmas!
