Ok- So I am officially a slacker! With all the holiday shopping, decorating, baking, festivities, blah, blah, blah, excuses, excuses, spending time with friends and family, fighting through the snow and ice, and batteling against all the cold weather
bugs... (ok- i'm not going to even go there... with my little bug obsession... an obvious poor choice of words!) OK- how's this one instead... and batteling against all the cold weather coughs and colds! - I should have used that one in the first place anyway... it is much more clear on what I was going for!
Anyway- putting all of that aside, I am finally able to sit down and pay some much needed attention and TLC to my blog! Going on nearly a month now since my last post is a little disheartening for me... I'm sure I've lost a few readers... which has put me back down to only one... still... again... Thanks for staying loyal and hanging on!! But, good news for the future!!! I am off of work for the next 2 weeks!!! YYYYYYAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!! CAN I TELL YOU HOW EXCITED I AM~!!!!!??? Is it that obvious!? So, needless to say- I will be doing all kinds of fun things with the girlies and will be dying to tell you all about it- so stay tuned... there will be (hopefully) several little posts throughout the next couple weeks!
As for this post...
Here is a taste of what we have been up to: Well, not really a taste... more like a SMORGASBOARD of things we have been up to... (how do you even spell that!? Is it even a word...) oh well- strap on your seat belt- I'm about to throw all kinds of pictures at you... I'll do you a favor and let them speak for themselves instead of explaing every last detail... neither one of us want to be tied up with this blog for the next 5 hours... so - I'm sure pictures will be just fine with you too!!
Thanksgiving was great! Spending time with our family and loved ones is always a blessing, especially during the holiday season!
Sloan's class luncheon was also a hit with all! (I particularly loved the placemats, and what they were thankful for on the bottom..."the beautiful world"? someone clearly was giving her options of things to put down! but still absolutely adoreable!)
We made our Christmas gift baskets...
And our other Christmas gifts...Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix: apparently this is a huge hit this Christmas. I've noticed several people are doing this this year... Hopefully that means a lot of people like it!! Although I never realized there are so many different ways to make it! Every recipe I have seen from people making this are completely different... I'll add this recipe in another post ~ This post is quite too long already!!!
And of course we are always dressing up...
and sneaking off into mommie's lipstick!
So there you have it! The basics on what we've been up to, and what has been stealing my time away from my blog!
And surprisingly enough the post was not too long after all... cutting back on what I say really helps out!! hhmmm... imagine that!? am I telling myself something?! nah!
Have a wonderful weekend! And don't be a stranger~ Check back soon... I'll be posting again shortly!
Hope everyone is ready for the Holidays!! ~ If not... we still have a few days!
