Good morning!

Wow, I'm exhausted! The kids had their Christmas concert last night at school. It was long, but they did great. After FINALLY getting them settled down and in bed, I started assembling teacher gifts and then gifts for my co-workers. Not to mention child specific items for each of their class parties today. Never a dull moment! I finally dropped in bed around 10:30, which is late for me.

So, today is work for me. Blah. What a waste to be open, imo. Nobody is focused, we just want the week to fly by! The kids have an early out of 2:00, so that means I'll get out of work early today to go get them. After school my friend invited my children and myself over to decorate Christmas cookies, and I stupidly agreed. Jeesh, as if I didn't have 100 other things to do before we leave on Friday morning!!!

Tonight I need to bake more caramels, mix up some gingerbread cookie dough for the kids to decorate when I'm at work on Thursday, and possibly some more hard candy. I also need to wrap about 10 more presents that I are hidden throughout the house! lol

Have a great day, everybody!!

Busy day here, too. Worked a full day, shopped for groceries, ran an errand, came home. After dinner I am going to make some apple butter in the breadmaker, some pumpkin butter on the stove top, and finish wrapping gifts. DH is going to make Challah bread for our Christmas day french toast casserole and has already put together a vegetable beef soup in the crock pot for the next couple of days' dinner. Whew!

Some friends from Florida are up until the 26th, so we will be going out for drinks with them tomorrow night. That was an unexpected thing that we weren't planning on, so hopefully we are in good enough shape for the holiday to go out and enjoy ourselves (I don't drink so I get to be the designated driver).

I wrapped 95% of the Christmas gifts Thanksgiving weekend, so all I have to do is make veggie pizza for Christmas Eve. On Christmas day we are making an entire brunch to carry over to DH's niece's apartment and have a nice time with her and her kids (and boyfriend). That day will be busy and hectic because we are making enough food to feed an army!!! haha

Have a wonderful evening!!!
