Santa spoiled me this year.. He always does!
I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating with your loved ones.
This year I had Christmas Eve at our place and then we went over to the King's for Christmas Day.
I ate SO MUCH food!
You would think I would have taken more pictures but I was still trying to figure out my camera :/
My tree after opening up all our presents!
Santa stopped by! He was hungry:)

I was in charge of bringing dessert.. I made Paula Dean's Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake
Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake
1 (18 1/4 ounce) package yellow cake mix
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
1 tsp. vanilla
8 tbsp. butter, melted
1 (16 ounce) box powdered sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Combine cake mix, egg and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 x 9 baking pan.
To make filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well. Spread pumpkin mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.
Serve with fresh whipped cream. (A MUST!)
Hope you have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
