Getting Ready

We've been busy this week getting ready for Christmas.

Making an ugly Chrsitmas sweater. It was so much fun to put together. Sparkly garland, lights that blink. What's not to love?
I'm happy to say that Andrew won the ugly sweater contest at work. Really, was there any question?

Wrapping presents, presents, and more presents.
A flannel sheet found at a thrift store (don't worry, it was brand new with tags still attached) becomes a table cloth and fun little bags that hold treasures for Christmas morning.

Cute little jingle bells attach the handle.

Some more little bags made out of a piece of remnant fabric with jingle bells to tie them close.
 Already to open Chritmas morning.
Baking gingerbread houses, cookies and Christmas cake.
Lots and lots and lots of chopping. Thanks, Andrew!

Nine eggs. Yes, nine eggs! It's an old recipe. From my mom, from her mom.

Ready for the oven. Andrew's been boozing the cake. We'll eat it Christmas day. I can't wait.

Adding sparkle.

Enjoying some Christmas cheer.
Mr. Man's Christmas concert was short and sweet. He was a dancing snowflake.

Even Sneakers got into the Christmas spirit.
