“There is not enough time to do all the nothing we want to do.” -Bill Watterson
4 hours of wrapping- kid's gifts done, Haldan's gifts done, secret santa gifts done, 55 cupcakes done, friends, neighbors, and teachers gifts done. What a great feeling to be able to check it all off my list. I have to add that I absolutely despise wrapping. I would rather clean toilets than wrap. I'm not really sure why. I enjoy and appreciate a nicely wrapped gift. Maybe it's the chaos of it all. Glad to be done.
The cupcakes went much more smoothly this time around. I was more together and started looking for the ingredients last week. Wish I would have started on the candy eyes sooner. We had to settle on that, but everything else was fine. I made the antlers yesterday and the cupcakes came together quickly. For those of you interested in this idea or other fun Christmas treat ideas, click here. I don't even remember where I found it, but I've had it in my idea folder for over a year. It is a video clip from a news channel in Utah. It also includes the cute snowmen I did a couple weeks ago. I'm so grateful for others who share their wonderful talents.
Thanks Haldan for all the help.
Now I'm looking forward to kicking back with the kids and enjoying our few days before Christmas.
