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 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.

A few plans for the rest of the week...

Mon: Cleaning, baking, wrapping gifts

Tue: Cleaning, baking, wrapping gifts

Wed: Christmas with my side of the fam. will be a fun and loud time with lots of laughter, eating, opening gifts, playing games and a new dirty santa game

Thur: Christmas morning opening gifts with my girls.
Going to his parents and opening gifts with them.
Then to his Aunt's to eat lunch.

Fri: Rest and Relaxation Brad is on vacation for 12 days! YAY!!!!

Sat: Rest and relaxation

Sun: Rest and relaxation

Always enjoy reading your days :)
Maybe we can start a new tradition of making bread together! I'd like that.

See you in a bit :)

I like traditions especially when it comes to baking. It's not to good for my mid-section though. What's Brad going to do with those 12 days?
