Dear Santa....

Dear Santa, I want an iPad for christmas...and world peace. ;-)

6 days til Christmas!! I'm done shopping, I'm done wrapping....I'm done. Just plain done!  I don't want to see anything else to wrap, I don't want to see another cookie....I'm not even sure if I will be eager to bake for Christmas dinner desserts! LOL  Ok..maybe I'm not THAT done!

This past Saturday, my mom, sister, sis-in-law and a friend got together for our annual "cookie day". Cookie day is not for the weak.....it's hours of non-stop baking!!  I mean, this is serious stuff. I had a list of about 20 some cookies to make. We got most of the list done. We could have gotten all of them done but my dear sister totally messed up one batch. Don't tell, but I messed up another one....we ran out of 1 ingredient for another cookie...and the rest...well we were beat! 

We got a later start this year because my daughter, who is 7, had a school play that morning. She was the narrator and she did an AWESOME job. I was so proud of her. She had to speak throughout the play in front of so many people. She was loud, clear and she showed emotion in her voice!!  It was a cute little play too...it was a Gingerbread Man adaptation.

We got started baking after the play and baked until about 10:30 that night. Everybody left, I cleaned and finally sat down around midnight! I was exhausted and sick from the smell of cookies. lol  I still have a couple things I would like to bake. Not sure if I will get around to that though.



This little cutie is a digi from Krista Smith, Saturated Canary.  She is colored with Copic markers.  I glittered up that little nutcracker.  The sentiment is from the Michaels dollar bin! ;-) Quick, easy, simple card, not much else to say about it!! 

Don't forget there is still a couple of days to get in for my BLOG CANDY!

Hi Tracy! Well girl, you should be proud of yourself, getting all the wrapping done, cookies baked and even a card made. Wow! That's something. I'm half way through this and Santa is already knocking at the door:)
Congrats to your daughter, she should be also proud of herself. It's hard to be the narrator at 7. Tomorrow my 2 yr old one will have to say 2 lines to Santa in order to receive his present and I'm quite nervous about that lol:)
Your card is delightful sweetie; great colors and coloring and beautiful layout.
Wish you a happy holiday season and only beautiful things for 2012!
Hugs, Iulia
