Again its been awhile since I wrote something. I'm becoming lazy as the year goes on. We've been quite busy here in our house. I've been making little Christmas treats for us to snack on through the month. Last week was the twins birthday party although they don't turn 4 until tomorrow. As usual my attempt at a party stinks but lucky for me my kids are easy to please.

I've been doing the twelve days of Christmas to the kids. After they go to bed I deliver a package to the front door for them to discover in the morning. It's been a huge hit and is making the wait for Christmas go much faster. Here is what I've done or will be doing:

First day of Christmas: Delivered a package of homemade fudge.

Second day of Christmas: Had pancake mix that I mixed up and some syrup that I canned in a pan. Once everyone was awake I made pancakes.

Third day of Christmas: Movie and homemade cookies.

Fourth day of Christmas: Homemade lollipops

Fifth day of Christmas: We took food to the local food bank.

Sixth day of Christmas: Special ornaments delivered for each person.

Seventh day of Christmas: Flavored popcorn

Eighth day of Christmas: A new Christmas book and navajo tacos for dinner.

Ninth day of Christmas: Donuts.

Tenth day of Christmas: Supplies for making reindeer dust to feed Santa's reindeer.

Eleventh day of Christmas: Hot cocoa.

Twelfth day of Christmas: New game to play and pj's to wear to bed.

What a great idea!!! We haven't received many treats from neighbors this year -- I think I am going to do this for the next 4 nights!!
