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:
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 hoping...to get lots accomplished today
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.
