Tis the Season (Update 3 of 3)

I am still working on gifts. I don't know why I always think I have so much time. Next year, I am starting earlier and just storing gifts away. Here's what I accomplished this weekend. I can't say who what is for yet but I can show everyone what I completed.

Tonight I am working on a pair of mittens, a hat and scarf set, and a poncho. Speaking of ponchos, I made a red and white one this weekend and forgot to take a picture of it before it became a gift. I did ask that the person who gave it, take a picture of the child wearing it. I will post it when I receive it. Z's teachers also received hats for Christmas last Friday.

And...I've been baking and just feeling like homemade is better than anything else. If only I had more time...

Today was our holiday party at the office. I made homemade biscuits, apple butter (crock pots are amazing), lemon cookies (thank you Christina for sharing the recipe), and a lemon poppy seed loaf. Everyone loved everything. Baking and crock pot food makes your house smell wonderful. :)

Happy Holidays to you all.
