December 19th already and WHERE did the time go?
We've been having a blast this holiday season looking at holiday lights, having baking parties, attending get togethers, you know...holiday stuff! Participated in a Secret Sister Santa group that was all sorts of fun and got some really cute goodies to boot! Nothing like a Secret Sister Santa group to get your creative juices flowing.
So how is it that only six days before Christmas I'm still ordering stuff from Amazon? You guessed it, I got busy with stuff and put too much on my calendar. It happens, we all think we can go to that one party, meet up with those friends, babysit the grandkids one more day/hour/whatever. Then our own stuff doesn't get done. It's called life. Things happen and you move on and do the best with what you have in front of you. Luckily we are all good, just some gifts and no one will notice if those are missing, right??
Because of the new health program we've been on, we haven't done a ton of baking nor did we make any fudge or zucchini bread to give away as gifts this year. Hubby has lost a total of 42 pounds since September 7 of this year, and I've lost a whopping 70 pounds in the same time frame. Needless to say, we are feeling really good about our new healthier lifestyle at this point and don't intend on doing any thing silly to jeopardize it.
I really love how our house decorations came out this year, I'll post a few pictures of them so you guys can see, and also from our cookie decorating day with the grandkids. Lots of fun and so many sugar cookies!
Ok, everyone. I have some interesting announcements but ran out of time and room on this post. I'll post those first thing tomorrow so stay tuned!!! Until then, enjoy the holidays because they are not here forever!
