Mmmmmm. . .our house smells like cookies and spiced nuts. Gosh, it is so delicious. I think you could gain 5 pounds just sniffing the air in here.
We made a couple different kind of cookies [Squirrel's favorites] and a bunch of spicy sugar walnuts. We are sending one last care package to her before she comes home this week. She will get it Monday to celebrate the end of finals and we pick her up Wednesday. Let the festivities begin.
I am loving Christmas. Everyday something new shows up at the front door [thank you UPS guy!] and it is wrapped and stashed. Come Christmas Eve we will just have to set it all up under the tree - and - done! [This is amazing for us. Usually we are wrapping until the wee morning hours of Christmas day! Getting it done this way is an extra bonus. We can just relax and enjoy the evening with the kids.]
Our cards are done - they just need Christmas stamps and they are in the mail. What is really weird is this year we have yet to get one card from anyone. Weird because we usually have a basket full by now. It may be because I didn't send any out last year [it was just a few months after my Mom's passing and I wasn't feeling it] but, meh - I don't send them out to get them. I send them out to keep the USPS in business [hi Julianna!] Kidding, kidding. I like sending cards and keeping in touch with people, some I have known for over 4 decades. That is fun. :)
I hope all your Christmas preparations are going according to plan and you are blessed with wonderful elves like me. Enjoy your weekend.
If you need me I will be the one sitting in the living room, sounding like I have a cold. ::sniff, sniff::
"Bring me a cookie please!"
