Outside my window...COLD well I haven't actually been outside but I just know it's cold!

I am thinking....How I have two more days to get everything finished for Christmas, and how I'm excited for Christmas(I'm still just a kid at heart)

I am thankful for....Traditions, I love this time of year to follow previous traditions and make new ones with my growing family

From the kitchen...Lots and lots of baking this week. I'm making:

Peppermint bark

Saltine chocolate toffee

Puppy chow(for Brad's work)

Mexican Wedding cookies

Cheese bread and cinnamon rolls with my Mom(I'm especially excited for this)

I'm also making a seven layer salad and green bean casserole for Christmas day.

And of course I can't forget I have to feed my family tonight and tomorrow I'm making:

Mon: Taco Chili

Tue: Homeade chicken noodle soup

I am reading...Nothing, I need to get to the library

I am creating...Nothing at the moment. I am hoping to do some scrapbooking over the weekend

I am hearing....quiet, it's nice. I guess my kiddos are really tired this morning so they are quietly watching Alladin in the other room

Around the house...Cleaning bathrooms today-uck my least favorite thing to do.

One of my favorite things...Cheese bread and cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning. We always did this growing up and my mom still makes us grown kids extra for our families. I'm excited this year to actually learn how to make them.

Thunder Game

Monday night we took Lily and our nephew Kaden to the Oklahoma Thunder game. We stayed until half-time even though they think we stayed for the whole game!(I know we are mean) They had so much fun watching the game, eating cotton candy, and drinking pepsi. Let's just say a combination of those things made them very VERY hyper!(as you'll see in the video at the end)

Wal Mart Gift Card

Wanna win a $100 giftcard to Wal Mart? Check out Centsiblesawyer for details!! Who couldn't use $100 to Walmart?!?!

Handprint Christmas Tree

Now that my girl's are older it is alot easier to do craft's with them.(most days!) This year I really wanted to get them in the christmas spirit by doing crafts each week. This week it's all about the christmas tree. Today we made handprint christmas tree's. I just traced their hands, cut them out and glued them together. Then they put stickers and colored red ornaments on them.

They were so proud of their creations!

Next week we will talk about baby Jesus and do some crafts about Jesus's birth.
Any suggestions for the craft?
