The baking is done! Well, for now. There will be more baking for Christmas Eve. I know that you are shocked, don't lie. Santa will need fresh cookies, right?
We spent the day delivering cookies to people that we love (and a neighbor that we don't). Brad took cookies to his employees and returned home with empty platters, which is a very good sign. 13 different kinds of cookies. 21 sticks of butter. 15.5 hours of baking. 780 cookies. 5 minutes for the Shipping and Receiving Department to empty two huge platters. 364 more days until Baking Day 2009!
Maddux is counting down the days as well.
We brought cookies to Nan and the caregivers at the Alzheimer's Facility. Nan was happy today. It was a very good day.
Lots of hugs. Lots of love.
Speaking of love... the kids got a box of Christmas gifts from my mom and dad today. Paizlee was the very happy recipient of a stuffed kitten. The perfect gift. She also got a tea set, so she has been feeding the cat tea.
That poor cat won't sleep a wink tonight.
It's almost Christmas, are you ready?
