I'm too busy for a title....

So here we go again.  Daily posting.  I can do this :)  Actually I'm looking forward to it, although I still think I must be slightly crazy for signing up for something else to take up time right now.  I wrote out my shopping list just for the baking I need to do in the next couple of week last night and it's scary.  Seriously.  Look!

That's just what I need to do the baking, and give it to 5 teachers and my neighbors.  Crazy, isn't it?  And it all has to be done a week from Friday.  So, really, I should be at the store, instead of typing. 

I did get the kids together to make the salt dough ornaments.  That was fun.  Kind of.  The boys pooped out on us quicker than I expected.  Luckily there's nothing on earth Lexie likes more than arts and crafts so she happily sat there painting ornaments. 

 A few of those will go with the baked goods as teacher gifts, and some are already on the tree.  I kept having to convince Joshua that despite their appearance, the unpainted ornaments were not cookies.  Guess it wasn't helpful that we cut them out with the same cutters that we do our sugar cookies with.  We'll do those late next week, with frosting and sprinkles.  Those, he can eat!

And lastly - something I'm going to try to do through this month of posting - a few small things I'm grateful for, or that make me happy.  I spend a lot of time not paying attention to the little things in life, taking it for granted.  So I'm going to try to pay attention here.

Central heat.  It's 28 outside right now, and nice and toasty in my house.
My microwave.  Every morning I eat oatmeal, and it's ready in under 3 minutes.  Not to mention all the other things I heat in a hurry.
2-ply toilet paper.  So soft and absorbent.  And I get to throw it away when I'm done with it.
Hand lotion.  Because central heat does have it's draw backs. 

Happy Holidailies everyone!
