Counting down to Christmas…

I know we all are ready for Christmas.  Well, pretty much ready, right?  I have a couple of things I want to pick up Thursday but that WILL BE IT!  I hope.  :) 

We have been busy with candy making and cookie making.  Now why do I do this?  I don’t need to eat it and I don’t give much away any more.  Tradition, right?  This year my sisters, Molly and Cynthia, my niece Sarah, and my daughter Kathleen got together to make goodies and just hang out.  I think the hang out is most of it.  So good to get together like that and we do have fun.12-19-10 get together 02 12-19-10 get together 03 12-19-10 get together 04  Zachary helping Molly decorate her cookies.12-19-10 get together 06 Sarah was making cake truffles with red velvet cake.  Uh huh.12-19-10 get together 07  The boys playing on the iphone.12-19-10 get together 10   Kaiden was there to help too!12-19-10 get together 13 Cynthia was rubbing Molly’s poor aching back.12-19-10 get together 15Who knows what was going on here.12-19-10 get together 16 Then the boys and I had to make cookies for Santa of course!  Zachary LOVES the crafty stuff.  He and I rolled the dough then he and Zane cut out cookies.
