Wow, I cannot believe how time flies when you are having fun. I love Christmas time and remembering why we celebrate this special day (Jesus birth). So fun to put all the Christmas decorations up but most of all the nativities that I have. Talking about each peice with my kids and the signifance they have when they are all together.
Now on the gifting side:

I don't know about you but my kids don't want much. They just want they just want something that is pricey. Family and extended family are done and mailed off now I can sit back and make treats for the neighbors and my co-workers. The house is tiddied up with the kids help everyday. One less thing to worry about.

I made goodies for V.T. today. See above recipe.

I love Amy's Recipes! This one
is the best. We usually make it
for New Years Eve snacks.
What a great idea for VT. I
may have to do some cooking tomorrow. I wish I could come
over and eat some of yours
right now....looks pretty tasty!

I love this recipe too! It looks very festive with the m&m's in it. My kids wish lists are getting smaller but more expensive too. I'm kind of sad, this year we won't have any fun action figures or cute toys to open, it's all electronics. :(
