So what have you been up to this Christmas Season so far?
We've been keeping our Christmas season low key.
Throwing in just enough baking and festive things to make it feel like Christmas.
I love this time of year
I really do.
There was that one moment when i was spouting off to my hubby
"We buy more stuff (gifts) when our house is already cluttered and we make all these sweets when we( i mean i) are already fat!!!"
And he said
"Don't go turning into the Grinch now"
So i changed my mood and got back into the spirit of things.
Anyhow, so i did some candy making and decorated cookies with some friends.
It gets awful boring alone.
My short attention span can't handle doing all this alone,
so doing it with someone is the way to go for me!
The finished products
Kinda how it looked "behind the scenes"
Then we(my hubby and i) did the "fun task" of delivering the Christmas goodies to our neighbors.
Something i actually don't really look that forward to.
We split it up.
Hubby did 2
I did 2 places-
Only about 2 weeks later.
(I kept putting it off.)
In doing so i did come to decide that they (although the one is slightly crazy) are nicer then i was imagining.
We visited the local Zoo to see some Christmas lights.
It was enjoyed by all...
And it just happened to be a little chilly that night, so that was a plus :)
Somebody stayed all toasty warm in his seat!
I love the palms!
Flamingos are fun to watch at night!!
We had our own lil family Christmas.
Which consisted of me quickly and i mean really quickly throwing together a meal of:
Pigs in a blanket
Choc. and caramel fondue
With different fruits to dip in.
All eaten in candle light
Then we opened up our gifts.
We exchanged names this year for something different.
I had Brooklyn's name
And Brooklyn had Carter's
Carter had Curtis'
And Curtis had Mine
Poor little Jamison was let out of the fun.
I'm veeerrryy practical and don't like to spend money on things for myself too much..
Or my couch for that matter.
I pointed out some pillows on clearance ( at target) and a pillow at TJ Max to my hubby for an idea for my Christmas gift..
And that is what he got me.
Happy am I!
Specially since two of them were only $3.56 a piece!
Have i mentioned before that i LOVE Target clearance?
My hubby did open a gift. He just got missed on the camera end of it. :(
So this is all just the beginning to our Christmas fun!
They say there is no place like home for the holidays.
And i find that to be true..
The north is calling our name..
Oh, and here are a couple pics of the kiddos that i love so dearly!
