I picked my Mother up from the airport today. Enough said! :-)
So here I sit trying to decide what to write. I haven't wrapped a gift, haven't started my Christmas favors - yes I make something for everyone to take home with them. This year I am making water less snow globes. I've seen them online in catalogs like Anthropology and Pottery Barn and they are crazy expensive. I figure I can do something similar much cheaper. I haven't even started them and Christmas is what, a week away!? I can see me making them Christmas Eve! I found these on another blog - Makely School for Girls - aren't they cute!
They just look so easy and in the stores, they are EXPENSIVE!
Like a little forest.
I still have to make cookies. Otherwise I think my family will throw me out.
I have only made 1 batch of cookies. I have ambitions to make Buckeyes, chocolate chip, Peanut Butter and PB with Hershey kisses, sugar cookies, biscotti and fudge. So far, I have only made chocolate chip cookies.
I am really behind.
I have to - HAVE TO - wrap this week because all the gifts are in my daughters room and she comes home from college on Sunday. She'll need someplace to sleep!
Did I say that I am really behind? Christmas is coming fast and there isn't enough time in the day with working full time then all of this other stuff I want to do. I need to invent a time machine or something to make time stand still so I can finish a couple of things! At least I am done, done, done shopping!
What about you are you ready for Christmas?
I will be back on Friday with some last minute gift ideas and hopefully (keeping my fingers crossed) I'll have the water-less snow globes done... if not YIKES! I also hope to show you my house all decorated, yes I finally got it there. I decorate every single room with something for the holiday.
