17 days down!

I am counting today productive dang it and an awesome one at that! I did some baking (still the blondies and butterhorns to go) Some sweet making (still the no-bakes and hard tack to make there) And managed to get some of my visiting done that I had planned on. Did a good bit of design work proudest wrapping is now past the half way mark! YAY!

The kids kept me on my toes today and I am feeling my age and then some tonight. I really wish there was someone that could just bottle up the energy they seem to have and give it to me LOL. 

Between playing Avengers with Dallas, Barbies with Roxy, Wrestling and Frogger with Stevie, Reading with Ana and a little dance party- I have wore out brain and body muscles I didn't know I had

Then while cooking dinner tonight, Roxy decided to hit me with the "How do you make" questions. So I gave a big science lesson on how electronics, shoes, paper, rice and silverware are made 0.o 
Granted, I haven't a darn clue the actual processes and probably made up lots of stuff to get through the questionnaire......but dang she made me think in overdrive hahahaha     

I'm sure her teacher will love the explanations of "Did you know if you use a do dad you can put some metal in it and make it a fork?" Or "A controller has lots of wires and fancy computer type stuff with some plastic to keep it from falling apart" - This was how she re-explained to daddy 0.o

Tonight's gift is an exclusive sneak peek at my new collection coming this Thursday to The Digichick!
With 17 down and only 8 to go:

My absolute favorite holiday treat is the fudge that I make with my kids. It's just the easy "Fantasy Fudge" recipe on the back of the marshmallow cream, but I love it! :)
Thank you for today's gift! I hope you have an amazing week.

Johna said...

reading about your questionnaire, yes, nothing can make us feel quite as stupid as our children, huh? LOL!
I love this preview!!! the black paper really caught my eye. I love the colors you have used!

Thanks for the gift today - you have been so generous! My favorite holiday treat is a drink - Tom & Jerry's. They are a variety of eggnog, but a lot thicker. My dad does an awesome job making them and they are not for the faint of heart when "fully loaded". He says, "One warms the belly, two makes you break out in a sweat, and the third makes you want to jump naked into a snowbank..." :)

Thank you for day 17... Glad you made a dent in your list.

Congrats on your awesome and productive day! You sure know how to pack a lot into each and every day. I'd have to say my favourite holiday treat is Shortbread cookies. I use my mom's old recipe. Mom used to make shortbread every Christmas (God rest her sweet soul) and although mine never taste quite as fantastic as hers did, they bring back so many fond and happy memories that I continue to make them every year. Thanks so much for all the amazing gifts.

Dawn said...

Thank you for this lovely kit - and congratulations on getting so much done in 24hours!! Nothing like ticking things off a list to relieve stress LOL

My favourite treat is to watch Muppet Christmas carol - with shout-outs and sing-alongs with my son who is now 22!!! Been doing it every year for as long as he can remember. I told him he has to keep doing it until he produces grand-kids to take his place LOL

If you want food treats - the mince pies - keep them away from me, I LOVE them!!

Rylea said...

peanut butter my all time favorite. Funny to say that since I am a bigtime chocoholic and caramel lover...but it is the only time I get to eat it. And me too, miss having lil ones around to share the baking and creating with. Soak it all goes by quickly. Made me laugh when she repeated all her gathered info to daddy. If only to see that Thank You and Merry Christmas

Thea said...
