Countdown to Christmas Update

Well, I haven't been doing to good at keeping up with my Countdown to Christmas...ugh! We are having an party on Saturday night and I have been pretty busy preparing for that - cleaning, making food, decorating, etc.! I am actually really busy today too! Our basement, where we are having the party, is a mess! I also watch kids in the basement, so I have to find a place to put all the little things that make big messes!!! Should be a fun!

Anyway, here are some pictures of some of the things we have been up to during our Countdown to Christmas!

We colored wooden ornaments, we made popsicle stick trees, we volunteered at Matthew 25: Ministries, we made fudge, toffee, Pretzel Rolo Turtles, cupcakes, cookies and Peppermint Bark, we made penguins for the front yard and I made a 2009 Family Christmas Star. We have also watch many Christmas movies too!

Tonight my hubby and Olivia and Cora are going to see "A Christmas Carol". It is a play and it is great! I saw it last year, this will be Cora's first year, so she watched "Mickey's Christmas Carol" this morning so she would understand the play tonight! :)

Well, I'm putting the computer up for the day so I can clean...probably won't be back until Monday, but I should have some more recipes and recipe cards for you then!!

I'm linking up to Liz over at Sugarplum Creations!! Be sure to stop by and check out everyone else's Countdown to Christmas!!

wow, you have been busy. Love that you made fudge. I havent done that since I was a kid. Me and kids watch lots of movies this time of year also and its fun to listen to their comments and take on the season.

Happy Holidays to you.
