Christmas shopping is nearly finished, wrapping is about 85% done and I need to do some baking to get that out of my system: some sugar cookies, gingerbread men, turtle candies, peanut butter balls and peanut butter sammys, just to name a few. I also got a new candy mold in the shape of mustaches that I used to make soap for gifts, but I can't wait to see how it looks with chocolate...don't worry, I've washed it several times! And the soap turned out awesome too!
I also realized I way overspent on Harper. Like, I found a bag of toys I forgot about bad. So now we need to figure out what to give her now, and what to hold on to for her birthday. Or maybe just spoil her, she won't remember much this year, right? Plus, if I hold items, how can I give her a kitchen set in June?? Decisions, decisions.
I think one of the things that get me in the holiday mood is getting cards in the mail. I love good old fashioned mail, particularly of the non bill variety. I love all the holiday cards we've gotten; I put them all on our closet door in the kitchen, and Harper and I like to look at them and name everyone off. Still waiting to get my sister's annual Hanukkah card...hint, hint.
We have one Christmas town, and 3 to go. Plus next week we have my aunt's annual cookie decorating party, which I am excited for Harper to get to participate in. They made her an apron last year that was a little big, so this year she should be good to go. We're going to practice tomorrow to see how she acts around the frosting and sprinkles and madness that is sugar cookies. Can't wait. Also trying to figure out what to make for Christmas Eve...any suggestions?
I probably won't post again until after Christmas, so have a Merry One!
My Gramma, always so merry lol!
After we sang our annual, Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer!
Mid song, circa 1989?
