Dear Santa

Santa Claus is coming to town. I don’t have decorations up (yet, although that’s the plan for today before the kiddos return from their grandparents’). I also don’t have our Christmas cards written and in the mail (but I do have the list updated). And I almost forgot about Santa Claus letters. Egad!

I am going to make a template and get all the kiddies (daycare and my

The Cookie Exchange

I am feeling rather ambitious this holiday season. I joined a cookie exchange where we were to bake 30 DOZEN cookies. Yep, me the non-chef, non-baker to make 30 DOZEN cookies! I am so naive that I didn’t realise just how much it was. Let’s just say I am very grateful to my mother who pretty much baked a whole ten dozen on her own while I was visiting a few weekends ago. I then took an entire day to bake another ten dozen. And then I was done. I couldn’t look at dough any more to bake the last
