I just have 4 things to say:
1. Oatmeal toffee cookies - 5 dozen
2. Cranberry Noels - 5 dozen
3. Molasses Cookies - 5 dozen
4. Peanut Butter Cookies dipped in chocolate and chopped peanuts - 2 dozen
All done. All baked. This has been my life for the past 3 days. Today Ashley came over and helped me bake and we had a good time. I couldn't have done it without her, actually. AND - we even got in a little lunch at Knowlwood's. The food was ok, the company was stellar.
Two more batches of cookies to go: Jam Thumbprints and Key Lime Coconut Bars.
Gifts all wrapped and under the tree with the exception of two: One should be UPS delivered on Thursday (thank goodness for online tracking!) and the second one I am picking up tomorrow. It is a surprise for L. A real surprise and it's going to be fun to give it to him. I will share with pictures tomorrow. I had to buy it on the sly and trick him - I love it when I can do that!
I hear that the Denver grandkiddies, Lexi and Matthew, are wound up tight anticipating Christmas. I can't wait to talk to them on Christmas Day and hear all about Santa's visit. Skylee is still oblivious to the whole thing...
The Massachusetts girlies, Mia and Hayden, are feeling the strain of the anticipation and stimulation all around them and had a tough day today. I think their mother had an even tougher one. I will have to Face Time them tomorrow and see if I can give them a little love. I've been so wrapped up in my own business I've rather neglected them.
But for now, a warm bed, soft jammies and sleep beckon. It's been a long, long baking day combined with work. (I hate going back and forth between real life and work...) I hope you're all starting to wrap up your Christmas labors and have been able to enjoy some of the pleasures of the season. And now, goodnight all!
