miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1.  Where does the time go?  Seriously, I can't believe that it's already Monday and that we're 1/2 way through December.  I still have a lot of shopping to do and I need to figure out what to get Jamison's teacher because I love her!  How is your shopping coming?

2.  Historic tree.  You must, must check out my friend Katie's Christmas tree.  She posted about it here.  I love all of the details that she added and I am amazed that she has so many things from her ancestors.

3.  Stirring tool.  So I saw this tool on an infomercial the other night and first I thought "what is the world coming to?"  They were selling this tool that you stick in your pot or bowl that will stir for you.  I was thinking that we are becoming awfully lazy that we can't stir our own ingredients but as I thought further I guess it's not much more than using a standing mixer.  Random!

4.  Cookies!  My friend Lyndsey's cookie exchange party was a lot of fun, as usual.  This year a lady made a maple/bacon cookie that she called the McGriddle (Caleb and Rondell loved this one!).  I didn't take my camera this year, but there was a nice spread of cookies...such a variety.  This is a party I will look forward to every year.

1) I bought the DVD, "Star of Bethlehem" for our teachers. It was on sale at Lifeway and Amazon for $10. I'm very excited about giving it to them. You know how much I love that DVD. In fact, I may just have to write my next blog entry about that...
2) I love that you have my "blog back" with those little links and everything. You're the best!

Ok, you're going to hate me for this...but I am done with all my shopping and wrapping! :) It feels awesome to be finished.
Ok, and I am lazy in the kitchen...where do I get this tool!?!?

I can't believe we have less than 2 weeks left until Christmas! I still have a ton of stuff left to do. I always send cookies or some type of homemade goodie for my kiddos teachers!

I am still not done shopping yet either. We have one more dirty Santa gift and Zack's mom and Kelsie's teacher and I need to look at all of the kids things to make sure that we are finished. Not to mention wrapping everything. But I am so happy that it's almost here!! I can't wait until this weekend and next week, I think I am baking something festive or doing some sort of snacky thing everyday!! And as far as getting a teacher a gift, I have not a clue. I can't think of a thing to get her teacher.

Shopping? Finished!

Wrapping? Yeah...notsomuch. I'm still working on those items that need to be shipped. :sigh:

I'm trying to wrap a few gifts a night. :o)

I'm pretty much finished...wrapped and everything. Don't hate me:) Can't even believe there is such a thing as a stirring tool. Complete crazies in the world!

I am proud to say that I got Trey's teachers gifts done today. We made them all a tile with their name on it. It was kind of crazy as we had to do 7 of them for school and church.
I am making cookies this week for a cookie exchange at Donnie's work. I am doing a Tiny Tim cookie. We will see how they go.
Have a fabulous day!

Sorry I can't focus on anything you just posted about except the maple bacon cookie...huh? Oh my that sounds so dang good. I'm googling that recipe :) Yum!

Have a great week my friend.

Pathetic that I'm just getting around to more links from Monday, I know. It's been that kind of week. I also saw your name at one of my fave blogs - Clover Lane and thought I'd say hello. I'm also joining to follow because I really like your vibe.
