December weekend wrap up....
So it's less then a week from Christmas now, and am I ready. Nope. Have I ever been this far behind. Never. Ugg. I have my cards done, but I still have to mail them out. I am usually on the ball with the cards and have them sent out right after Thanksgiving. I still need to get gifts for family members, mainly just gift cards, so it's not that bad I guess, but I am a person who just can't relax until everything is done even if it's nothing that stressful I can turn it into stress.
I started wrapping gifts this weekend and have a bunch under the tree now. I need to hit up the dollar store and get some bags and tissue paper though.
I was at least productive this week with getting ready for a kiddo ornament party for a few close friends. I made a 6 layer red velvet cake that turned out gorgeous, and tasty, I also made chocolate peanut butter balls, chocolate butter cream filled whoopie pies, almond cookies with a fancy cookie press that my mom just got me, and I set up a hot chocolate bar with freaking chocolate dipped marshmellows then dipped in crushed peppermint. Yepp, it's official I lost my mind with doing all of that, but it was pretty, and hopefully everyone liked it. It honestly wasn't that bad as I just did a few things a night and put them in the freezer.
I had the kids do three ornaments a piece. Nothing that exciting or hard. They put stickers on two things, and then I had them paint and glitter a snow flake ornament. It was messy but fun. We had an extra glass ball ornament, so we copied a pinterest idea and took my friends 4 month old and put glue on her feet, stuck them on the ball, and then glittered her foot prints. It turned out really cute, and only took 2 tries =)
Also this weekend I finished the grandparent scrapbooks that I do every year. I almost didn't do one this year as I slacked off and didn't work on them little by little through the year, so basically I did two this weekend. I do them digital now with the Creative Memories software, but it's still time consuming.
So that's all I have for you now, I just can't relax or blog about munch until I get through with my shopping and wrapping....
